Go to my NASBA States page and click your state link from there. It works.
Jeff - Is there an estimate on the percentage of home many people receive new simulations? I just took AUD yesterday and I'm curious what the chances are I might not find out my score until mid-Sept.
The AICPA hasn't disclosed this figure that I'm aware of. Hard to say. - Jeff
I just stumbled onto this site and I wish i had known about it sooner when I started this long journey...I have passed three sections AUD, FAR and REG (Thank GOD!) and just recently (7/7)took BEC (for the 2nd time, the last time I took it I scored a 73 and I was sooooo heart broken for being so close yet so far). I am anxiously waiting for my score and it is even more nerve racking to find out I probably wont get it till mid august..man the wait sucks!!!
Jeff - If I take on Augest 6,is that wave 1 or wave 3?
Sorry typing miss, Augest 6, is wave 1 or wave 2?
Do we have a ball park figure for those who may get a new simulation and get pushed into wave 2?
Are these predictions best case or worst case scenario?
I guess I picked a bad day to take my next section... FAR for the second time (68 the first time). I happened to schedule that the same day I am supposed to find out about AUD. It could be a really good or a really bad day. Here's to hoping it will be a really good day!
Lingling - August 6 should be Wave 1 Cant Pass - there hasn't been any info like that released Curious - these are BEST case scenarios
Jeff, I will take both FAR & AUD in the first wave (before Aug 6) in AZ. Does AICPA release my scores or Indie States? Thanks! Mike
@Solo- Same exact situation...passed REG, FAR then AUD... took BEC on 4/28 and got a 73!!! Just took BEC again yesterday...I only have to do one question better than last time ;)
Not sure about AZ, Mike. If I recall - AZ e-mails scores out...does this sound reasonable?
Jeff, How many pretest questions are there on the REG exam?
Up to 20% are pretest...
I took BEC last window and got a 72. I was wondering does that mean I am really close to passing maybe 1 or 2 pts away? I just retook the section 7/17/2010. So i'm really nervous and I hope it does mean that I was a few points aways from passing.
Jeff, Thanks. Are the pretest questions only in the multiple choice testlets?
jeff- if i take REG august 6, will i get my results in wave 1 or 2?
Pretests are only in the MCQs. One written communication isn't graded, however.
You are Wave 1-eligible, but it all depends on whether you had a new simulation or not. If so youre in Wave 2 automatically.
Jeff, August 7th,- is that including friday or not including friday- as the cut-off date.
I had my REG yesterday,,,,, it was really hard, most of the question were out of material i covered, there were many MCQ all the answer were corrent and i had to choice the best answer,, tough part,, and there were MCQ repeated, even there was one question (MCQ) repeated three times... this is my last part and hope i pass it... Advice to everyone,,,, Time manamgement in the exam,,, i got a problem last part (Simulatin 2) was very lengthy,,, unexpected, and required time more than the average Good luck everyone!
did you study from becker material?
I am sorry if i am asking same question asked before! what is new simulation or how i can differentiate the new simulation? is that applicable for REG also? I have attended the exam in third week of july, is it possible to get my result in wave1? Thanks!
@Rick, I am praying that we both passed BEC this time around. I am on pins and needles waiting for my score. Best wishes to you and everyone, I know how much work we've all put into this.
I took AUD (my last section) in 7/3. It has been a forwever wait. I am thinking of trying out another Accounting related exam. Not sure which one is more beneficial to have and not too hard to crack down - CMA?
@ Seekor, Have you considered the Certified Fraud Examiner(CFE)? That exam is a BREEZE compared to the CPA
@ Solo I had never heard of CFE before. Very good suggestion. I am checking it out. It sounded like you have tried CFE?
@ Solo, Thank you, Solo. Forensic Accounting crossed my mind a while back when I was still in college. But I never really checked much into it. It's exciting to find something new. I need to find out more about it. If you know more about the exam, can you share with me?
I took BEC in NY on 7/5/10... any updates on the score release or are we still shooting for mid August (which is creeeeeping like a nun)?
It seems scores won't be out for another 10 days or so. I took AUD on 7/3. Good luck to us all.
@Seeker, I just graduated with my Master's in Accounting, and I passed the CFE exam. Some potential employers that I interviewed with seemed to be more impressed with having the CFE than with the MA. The CFE exam is significantly easier than the CPA.
I took REG exam in fourth week of July, and i suppose to have my score in August (Wave 1) but might be in wave 2 incase with the new simulation. What is the NEW SIMULATION? Anybody can help! Thanks and good luck!
Mike- If you're exam had a new simulation (aka one that had never been tested before on a previous exam) then your results get pushed until Wave 2 because the grades will be based on everyone who took the exam in that window (b/c they have no historical data to base their grading on). I have taken 3 exams at the beginning of each window and NEVER gotten my grades in wave 1 (and my grades were not borderline either (AUD 89, FIN 83, BEC 79) which is another reason you could get held to the next wave. So basically, plan to wait. I just took the exam on Friday (my last one - God willing) and have no clue how I did. The first set of questions was super easy for me then the following 2 were the most difficult I've had on any of the 4 exams. I'm so nervous as to how I did and I can't imagine having to study for this one again. The whole exam is truly just test of stamina...I pray I passed!
@Kelli you mention you got pushed into wave 2 even for BEC....but there are no simulations that can still happen?????
@LizP I looked it over briefly what is needed to take the CFE exam. And I am still interested. I have a few questions: 1) It seems that I will need three Candidate Recommendations from three different person. Is that right? Can it be any body? 2) How long will my exam credit be valid since I probably won't have the required two year work experience by the time I finish the exam. 3) Can you recommend some good study materials, technicals best for this exam? 4) How long did it take you to study and pass the exam? By the way, what do you have your master in? I have been thinking about going for a master eventually. Did you work before going to graduate school? sorry it seems I am asking too much. Thank you
@LizP I found out more about the Recommendation letter.
@Seekor First of all, the two years of experience is pretty much anything. I worked for two years as a bank teller, and they accepted that. I think they go into more detail as to what they actually want from your experience. I don't think the references have to have a CFE. They are more just speaking on your character--if you're someone who is likely to commit fraud, they probably wouldn't let you be a CFE. The ACFE has a study program, and I recommend just using that. I'm not sure what other things are out there. I took the exam while taking a really heavy course load, but I managed to study and pass the exam in about 2-3 months. If your life is less chaotic, I think someone could get it all done in just a couple of weeks time, if you're willing to work hard on it. If you're used to studying for the CPA exam, studying for the CFE is a breeze. I got my Master's in Accounting. I'm glad I chose that, because it kind of sets me apart from the MBAs--not that one is better than the other, but a Master's in Accounting is still kind of rare in the midwest (where I am). I got my Bachelor's in Math and German and worked for three years before I went back to school full time. I found out that I couldn't get a decent job with my degree. I took a few classes in accounting while working full time and really enjoyed them, so I decided to dive in. Good luck studying! I hope all of this helps.
hi Kelli, Many thanks for your help. my case is almost as yours. I passed AUD, FAR, & BEC. I had my REG exam last week of July, and that was exactly as yours, the first testlet was super easy, but the other two testlet (MCQ) were super difficult. i worried too, this is my last part and i don't want to go through it again.. If any of the passed part expired then most probably we need to cover the new 2011 material which difere from what we had covered. Hope we pass REG. Good luck
@ anyone: not sure what the reason for the delay in BEC...I guess I just have really bad luck. But I took it January 14th and didn't get the grade until the on March 18th. @ mike: I have been sooo stressed about this stinking test. I was reading the blog about the girl who said she went in prepared and came out crying, I felt the same way. I literally took about 15 practice tests and scored an average of 94 on them. I thought I was going to go in there and blow it out of the water and now I'm just praying that I passed. I sincerely hope we get the test in the first wave and that we both passed. Please post when you find out!
@LizP Thanks for sharing. I am in the Midwest too -Twin Cities to be exact. I am thinking of Carlson School at the U of M. They have two master programs (Master in Accounting, and Master in Taxation). I am falling more towards the Taxation program, but still don't more what will be more beneficial to me.the Taxation program is very focus, and the Accounting one is very broad. And I would probably have to do part time as it would be too much to afford. St. Thomas University (in Minneapolis) also has a master in accounting. I am not sure if it matters so much which school to get into. Or simply should I just get my foot in the door and start making people connections. And, did you have to take GMAT? I graduated with a BS in Accounting in 2008. I have been working 2 years in more marketing (imports) field for a small company. I took the cpa exam - have passed three sections- waiting for result for the last section (AUD). I did enjoy studying for the exam as I find myself gaining a lot from studying each section. As to the CFE, are you certified with the 2year Bank Teller experience? To what I understand my four year college degree will qualify me to take the exam, then I will need two year related experience in auditing, or other related filed. Also, one has to be member of ACFE before he/she can apply for the exam. I am not yet a member. Do you know how long one has to be a member before he can apply for the exam? There may not be any time requirements. I am asking just in case. Thank you.
@Everyone -Regarding CFE As for recommendations, it can be a former colleague doesn't have to be a supervisor but can be. Anyone you've worked with that can attest to your character. It is basically a character reference/validation of your experience. The experience can be directly fraud related or indirectly related. I have some years of accounting and auditing experience but if you don't and just have accounting or something I think that should be ok. Someone asked about how long you have to be a member of ACFE before you can take the exam. I don't believe there is a time requirement, You don't even have to be a member to take the exam. It is cheaper if you are. I am in FLorida, but I am pretty sure the costs for the exam, membership and prep course is the same all around. If you are a student/professor, I think there is a discount. Non student, the membership is $125 per year, the exam is $150 for members and $250 for non members. The exams consist of four parts, Fraud prevention, Financial, Law and Investigation 125 question per sections. All multiple choices. The BEST way to study for this is through the Prep course that ACFE offers because 90%(they say) but I think its more 100% of the questions come from the manual. the other option is to buy the Handbook manual which is about 2000 plus pages. and read through it and hope that you can figure out what questions will be on the exam. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THAT. Although, the prep course is about $715- for member and more for non-members...but it is so worth it and contains about 1500 questions total. If you do all the questions and take a couple practice tests, I guarantee you will pass. They too have a money back guarantee. Well, I purchased the prep course and did all the question about twice, each section and took about two practice exams for each sections, and then took the exam.- you have about 30 days to take all four parts from the time you start the first one. you can do section by section. I was able to do all that in 2WEEKS.. that is a little aggressive and that is because I was determined and only had so much time to dedicate to and etc...so two week was my goal.. but whatever works for you. Ive know people to do it in 4 weeks, 6 weeks and etc. it all depends on what's going on in your lives. If you can do the CPA, TRUST me, you'll do fine with the CFE. Hope this gives you a bit more perspective. Sorry for the delayed response.
Just found out more about the Pre-course for CFE US $815.00 Member / US $1268.00 Non-Member
Another tip regarding the CFE--if you are a student, you get a major discount on the exam and course. If I remember correctly, I paid just over $300 for everything. You do have to CALL to get that program. The discount is not offered online. @Seekor: I don't think it really matters what school you end up going to. I was debating between Wash U in STL and U of I in Springfield, and I ended up with the second, which ended up being a great deal. I got an assistantship on campus which paid for my tuition, and I now have a job that I couldn't be happier with. Wash U is known nationwide, but they are also known for their high tuition. So, I think it is wherever you can get a good education without having to sell a kidney in order to go. I was originally planning to go to Wash U, because I was living in the STL area. Wash U requires the GMAT, so I did take it. However, not all schools require it, so I would decide which school (or narrow it down) you want to go to and find out from them. It just depends. As far as the experience for a CFE goes, all I had when I took the CFE was a bachelor's (in fields completely unrelated to accounting) and 2 years experience as a bank teller. I had some other jobs while in college, which I put on the application, but that's it.
>>Kelli,, I have covered the material (Lectures & MCQ) many manytimes and i was targeting to score over 80, But now i am praying for 75. This is the first time i am having exam in the first month of the window, the reason to get the result in wave 1 and incase i couldn't make it then i have more time (one month) to study till November! I was not aware of the New Simulation or there is a chance of delaying the score to wave 2 otherwise i could have my exam in August and study more! Bad Luck! My AUD is expiring in Nov and if i again could not pass RED in Nov then i have to cover the new material in 2011 for the AUD. I pray to pass this time and its over. Wish you all the best and wish you get your score over 75!
Hello, future CPA's. As we await our exam results let us not lose focus of the task at hand. Continue to study. Assess your performance and get back to studying. This exam is not a deficult one, it is more of a test of discipline. I am an exteral auditor working with a Big Four, i know accounting and auditing, i prepare financial statements for some of the largest corporations in my country, yet i failed. How could this be? Simple! I did not practice enough. All we need to do is: Step 1. Understand the material, read your text one or two times until you are comfortable. Step 2: Practice multiple choice question, making those you get wrong. Step 3: Review those you got incorrect, making sure you understand the principles being tested. Step 4: repeat the above steps, starting with step 2. All the best in our studies. AUD: 91 FAR: 79 BEC: wave 1 REG: studying
@Solo & Lizp Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and experiences. All this information is very valuable. I will get on it as soon as I find out about my AUD score (last section). I took AUD on 7/3. It has been a forever wait. I always get excited when I see new/good things to look forard to. I enjoy studying - enjoy the process of learning to be exact. After CFE, I will focus on my Master degree, and many more.... But one at a time. I am not working in Accounting field right now, but actively looking. Not lucy yet, hope for the best.
Jeff, what is the 411?
All quiet still...make sure you get my free e-book on score FAQs... https://www.another71.com/cpa-exam/scores-results/
It was Tom Petty who said "Waiting is the hardest part..." and he never even had to take the CPA exam!!!
It is ture.... the day after the exam, i have started thinking about my score and waiting since then for three weeks! Thinking day and night,,,, driving me crazy!
Hey Jeff, Any update on score releases from NASBA? Thanks
No updates...I'll definitely post them when they happen.
Updated BEC release prediction: Wednesday 8/18
@Jeff Can I ask if there was some issue that prompted a change in prediction. I was never really into worrying about when the scores were posted...but my attitude change when it became my last one :)
Is that a NASBA release for Wed or AICPA?
Jeff, I took FAR on July 1st and AUD on July 31st for MA. When do you think I will find out about both scores? Thank you!
That's an AICPA release for wednesday. I got a bit of intel...it's just a prediction.
Kate - did you sign up for the free e-book above? It will hopefully answer a lot of the questions you may have. - Jeff
is the release order still predicted to be bec, aud, far, reg??? *sigh* i'm praying my reg score managed to get lumped in w/ wave 1 results. having to wait another month is going to be torturous
antzy-when did you take your reg? I took mine on 8/7 and it looks like either 8/6 or 8/7 will be the cutoff...I am ANTZY too! :)
Jeff - does pushing BEC back to 8/18 change the other dates of your prediction?
Same question here! Anxiously awaiting AUD and was hoping for Wednesday.
This is indeed torturous!! BEC is my last section and now that the prediction has been pushed to 8/18 is just NOT RIGHT! I cant take the pressure....I took the exam on 7/7....so it has been a LOooooooooooooong wait!!
Yes they will be pushed--I don't ever recall them releasing two sections in one day, and usually AICPA releases scores every other day. However, if we're lucky AUD will be released Thursday and NASBA states will receive scores Friday.
@katy i took REG on 8/7 as well - hopefully we will be in the wave 1!!! good luck to you and i hope you pass :)
anyone who took regulation using becker is it important to read the required HW reading starting from the end of chap 4 thru end of chap 7
@please respond, if you have the time, i would read/browse the appendix material but don't spend to much time on it. from my experience i never got any questions related to the HW reading. Becker includes it because infrequently, a question on the topic has popped up on exams. focus on the core material ... that's where the points matter the most.
I think we'll see AUD on Friday...REG on Monday/Tuesday hopefully. These are best-case scenarios, probably.
So what's that mean for FAR?
i took Reg on August 7, 2010 and i believe that it is very impotant to complete all home work readings
@Rachel Maybe, next week for FAR, not this week FAR is the last I took on 8/11,12 for AUD, REG Hopely, I wanna to show-up my score on wave 1
@David: Just wishful thinking on my part I guess. FAR is my last one and the wait has been long!! I tested 7/31. It is possible that your scores could be wave 1. I took REG 2/12/10 and received my score in the wave 1 release for that quarter.
I'm driving myself crazy with my last test (REG) I have even tried the *trick* to see if the NASBA loophole has the scores in, but it's too early - that only works a day or two before, right? I dreamt that I got a 65 on it last night. Please be in wave 1, please be in wave 1...I can't take it anymore!!! AUD 89 BEC 79 FAR 83 REG ??
@ kelli or anyone I am studying for REG and am wondering is it neccessary to study the required reading and the end of chapters starting with chap 4....if so which in particular....is doing the MCQ enough?? please help have exam coming not sure what to do
any news on the audit wave 1 release? i took august 6th
Does anyone know whats going on with the Wave 1 score Release???
Where are these scores? I took AUD on 7/7!!! It has been 6 weeks already! This is ridiculous...
Wait, so is this the AICPA release date prediction or the NASBA prediction? I took BEC 7/9 and its killing me so much that I can't really study for my AUD exam which is in 10 days!!! ugh :/
@Kelli What is the NASBA "trick" you are talking about to check your scores a day or two early?
@April its called the "Ohio loophole" but it has been said that they might have plugged it (meaning that it may no longer work)... you can look at forums on this site that talk about it.. good luck!
I took Reg 7/1, BEC 7/14 and FARE 8/5. So i'm potentially getting back three scores in wave one. And i'm taking AUD this thursday the 19th without knowing how i did on any of the others. Its horrible! If you can beat this, I applaud you!
I took REG on 7/17. I am so anxious to know the result.
is there any update on the prediction for BEC score release and at what time it would be released
Anybody got any result? I am waiting for REG,,, this is my last part....
I took AUD on 8/2/10 and this is my last part... passed it 18 months ago and lost conditional credit; the wait is killing me
Did anyone get any scores for any exam? Just want to see if the process has started.
Copied from another post... Since everyone is asking about this loophole, I figured it deserves its own thread. Who does this work for? --- NASBA Candidates who have past three parts and are waiting on the score for their fourth When does it work? --- After the AICPA has released your score to NASBA, but before NASBA has released your score. How does it work? 1) Go to NASBA.ORG --> Exams --> CPA Exam 2) Select OHIO and click "go" 3) Click "Re-Exam Registration" 4) Click "Apply Now" 5) Click "Continue" 6) Choose "No" for "Do you have an OHIO jurisdiction ID"...since you are not from OHIO 7) Choose "Yes" for "Do you have a US SSN" 8) Click Submit 9) Type in the CAPTCHA letters, your Birth Date, and your SSN 10) Click submit 11a) If you receive the following message, the theory is that you passed: "We are sorry. Our system shows that you have already passed all parts of the Uniform CPA Examination. If you have questions, please call your Coordinator at the number given below. Please call the number below. 800-CPA-EXAM 615-880-4250" 11b) If you do not get this message and it lets you proceed, the theory is that you did not pass. Does it always work? -- Nobody knows. But it does NOT seem to work for ALL NASBA states. Does it work at ALL? -- If history is a guide from what I have read, everyone who got the message passed. If you have different results, please share. Or correct me if I am mistaken. Thanks to whoever originally found this out! I hope it holds true for me!
BEC is still on track for today...typically they release around 5:30pm EST
I gave all the papers of CPA in the first week of July '10. Curious to know my result. Did anybody got any result???
The loophole seems to work for Indiana too...two of my friends tried it and they both got the message and got passing scores released the next day.
@Kelli, I just tried the trick (man, I was shaking so bad while waiting for something, anything to pop up on the screen) all I got was "We are sorry. Currently all sections of this exam are still in process. Please call the number below." 800-CPA-EXAM 615-880-4250 I am not sure what that means, but I guess it may be too early.. I am just glad it didn't let me proceed. This is my LAST section (PRAYERFULLY)
Has anyone been a candidate from Nevada? We're an independent state, but go to the nv accountancy website for our scores. I'm just wondering how long we wait after the AICPA releases to NASB?
Hi Jeff, I am in Illinois, do you think I will get my scores today?
Everyone keep in mind the loophole only works AFTER the AICPA releases scores to NASBA, and also they have been woring on a plug for this, so even if you think you passed based on the loophole it may not be true! This topic comes up every score release so I thought I would mention it now...
So does this loophole only work for NASBA state candidates? I am testing in Illinois and was wondering if this would work for me?
@Marcus, I am not sure but I believe so. You do not have a very long wait after the AICPA releases them though. If you took BEC and they come out today, you should see them by the morning...
I'm in Tennessee and waiting on BEC which happens to be the first exam I've taken. It's kind of challenging to study for REG while waiting (so impatiently) on the results. Good luck to everyone on the results!!! I pray I'm part of the 49% who passes.
Does anyone have any updated predictions as to when REG will be out? At this point, CPA = Certified Pain in the Ass in my book.
Kristie 18. Aug, 2010 at 8:37 am The loophole seems to work for Indiana too two of my friends tried it and they both got the message and got passing scores released the next day. Was this for this scoring period?
@Jason: No, it was earlier this year.
@ Lady in waiting - I could not agree more! This is my LAST exam I pray! It's been a year of studying for me and I want it to be over, over, over. I heard that REG will be released on Mon to AICPA and then Tues for NASBA. Assuming we didn't have a new simulation. I'd like to hear that BEC got released because then we'd know it's coming down the pipe (usually released in this order: BEC, AUD, REG, FAR). Let me know if anyone heard anything different. Tick tock tick tock...
Jeff or anyone for that matter is the BEC release that you say is still on track....does that mean for score to be up on nasba site or just that AICPA is only releasing them today to nasba to then see the score tom after 10 pm EST
Noreen - I'm in Nevada and we should get our scores from nvaccountancy.com between 2am-5:30am the following morning the AICPA releases scores. Hope it helps! I'll be there checking online at 2am tomorrow! hehehehe Good luck!
Has the AICPA released AUD yet?
Thanks, nycegurl. Now I know I'm crazy - home at lunch studying FAR - praying BEC is a pass!!!
@Bob I was curious about that too! I took AUD July 31 and I feel like I've been waiting FOREVER!
Hi All, I am waiting for the scores for AUD to be released in NY. I sat for the exam on July 3rd and this wait is killing me. A friend of mine sat for Audit a week later and she got her score. It was a 73 so I do not know if they released it earlier because it was a failing grade..? I am so confused!!!!
@Lisa When did your friend get her score for AUD? I'm waiting on my score for BEC...took it 8/4.
@Lisa, I think that is pretty much impossible... My only thought is that your friend put in the wrong section ID (a section they had taken before) and the score was still up. I can't think of another situation.
Latest from NASBA Twitter: """Know that you are waiting, but no news yet. #cpaexam """
Bob, so im confused by that "tweet" does that mean they havent even received them yet, meaning BEC scores WILL NOT be viewable today? I know people have waited longer than me, but esp since its BEC, 5+ weeks is kinda crazy.
mrguy, Jeff's book says that scores are generally pushed to NASBA anywhere from 330-530 EST, so we're not even at the 330 mark. I bet they will get released today. Being this is my first exam, and I'm in an indy state, I'll be refreshing my state's site for the forseeable future. :D
thanks Bob, that makes sense I am also refreshing/resubmitting all day and will continue to do so. getting out early from work (and by early I mean not late haha) is sometimes not a good thing. That drive home is gonna be torture. might have to stay late.
Oha nd good luck to you (and everyone)
Thanks Bob for the update from NASBA via twitter....I've been wondering if they posted anything yet.
Today, 10896 BEC scores were released by the AICPA to NASBA from the July / August 2010 testing window.
"Today, 10896 BEC scores were released by AICPA to NASBA for the Jul/Aug 2010 testing window. #cpaecam #accounting #cpa"
Too slow, I guess.
HAHAHA Jeff is too quick on the trigger for you! Good luck everyone!!!
BEC was just released https://twitter.com/NASBA
So for those of us that are new to this game. Does that mean we'll start to see scores tonight or tomorrow?
If BEC was realeased today, do you think AUD will be released tomorrow or Friday
Prob. Fri for AUD, you will get it monday night if you are a nasba state.
Well I am sadly in TX and awaiting both BEC and AUD, so I figure the earliest for me it Friday for any scores. TX has to ratify the scores before it gets posted usually takes an extra day :(
Jeff, so if BEC scores were released today what would the tentative release date for FAR scores be?
***Guaranteed to be wrong*** : AICPA release prediction: AUD - Friday FAR - Tuesday REG - Wednesday
This is my first time waiting for a score from the AUD exam. What is a NASBA state? Where would you go to get your score once they are released? I am in Texas.
I think I liked it better when you had separate posts for updates. It's hard fo rme to tell whether anything has changed now that the updates are all included in one post.
@Bridget NASBA States get their scores about 24-48 hours after the AICPA release the score to them. Texas usually has at leat a 24 hour lag after that. The board ratifies the scores. Thanks to Enron, the whol CPA exam process is so convoluted If you have your account set up online, you should be able to log on to view your posted score at the Board's website https://www.tsbpa.state.tx.us If not you can call the state to set up the online process. The information whould be on the website Good Luck
tcpa85 if the number of comments increase, theres news most likely. or at least other people letting you know whats going on. refresh and review.
Tori, Thank you for the quick response. I will check my scores on the TSBPA website.
If anybody has experience with how fast Illinois posts after the AICPA release, please let me know. BEC is my last exam, I supposed I am a little anxious
I put the updates in the bottom of the post...hope it's a little easier to track. -Jeff
Kurt - I bet IL will be out by tomorrow AM or afternoon. Jeff
Thank you sir, I appreciate it. I was really hoping for tonight, I guess another day won't hurt me. THANKS!
I'm getting this message: Error: Score not found. But on the website it says the error message should be, if the score isnt in yet: No Record Found. Am I over reacting here or is there an issue with my info.
i am in NY, when will i get my BEC score? i am in wave 1 for sure..
So just to confirm the scores will be available, as in i can see it with my own two eyes on the computer screen, 24-48 hours after they are released from AICPA to NASBA is that correct? also nate, don't worry I have the same thing. I wouldn't be concerned.
Can i expect to see my BEC score tonight after 10 PM EST IM a NY register
BEC scores were released by the AICPA... When will CA candidates receive their score? I just checked to see if my score arrived, and nothing. I was definitely in wave 1 as well.
I'm waiting for BEC score in OH any know how long it usually takes them? 24? 48? This is seriously torture. Jeff, any chance you have a list of typical wait time by state?
Are scores usually sent by email before they are posted on the net or not? Good luck
Jeff-Any updates on AUD?
This waiting is unbearable....
So, will we see BEC scores on Nasba tonight or tomorrow? This is excruciating!
If you text "follow NASBA" to 40404 (US residents only) they'll send you text alerts about score releases! It was awesome! I got a text this morning saying they hadn't heard anything from the AICPA yet. And then at 4:00 ET I got one saying they were released and to give them 24 to 48 hours!
@Madison Does it cost anything to receive the updates?
Will Audit be released by the AICPA today(Thursday)?? Why would they wait until friday?
My BEC score was posted on the Nevada website this morning - what a great Board! BEC 86 - BEST OF LUCK to everyone.
Congrats Noreen! BigTony: No, it's free. It's just charged as a normal text message.
Congrats Noreen, can anyone register for BEC that is waiting for their score?
Congrats Noreen!! I am praying for a passing result...as BEC is my last section...PRAYERFULLY! Has anyone from a NASBA state received their BEC score?
Jeff!!! Will the AICPA release Audit today? I'm going crazy over here! Please don't tell me I'm going to have to wait until next week!
CA Resident here, I just got sccores for BEC, 88, OH YEAH BABY!! 2 down 2 to go. Thanks for the info everyone.
Oh the waiting...Congrats to Noreen! Way to go and best of luck to everyone. I took BEC and got a 68, so here is round 2...praying I pass and the waiting is just awful..although comforting to know that I am not alone in this.
if im in NY and trying to look at score for ohio loophole - can i look this morning? or do i have to wait till mid day... are the OH scores posted yet?
Anyone know when NY will release bec
@anthony - they will be released for NY at 10 pm tonight.
CA scores are out .. 80 .. alhumdillah :)
Waiting on REG...it's my last test. I need to be hospitalized with the blood pressure spike this test is creating in me. I thought REG was very difficult and I studied like a maniac (used Becker). Anyone else? Also, what day next week do we think REG will be released???
Stressed in Texas, This is not my last exam. It's my second to last but i took Reg too. It was very difficult and i studied so much using Becker. I really don't have any idea how I did. I'm hoping Reg will be next but I'm not holding my breath. UGh!! SIGH!!
Any word on VA for BEC?
Hi, anybody who gave BEC from Colorado State Board??? After typing the Section ID & Date of birth it is showing "Error : Score not found". Is it that the scores are not yet released by NASBA for Colorado Board??? Please help...!!!
Thanks Jeff! The updates stand out a lot more now.
@Raghu I am getting the same error message and I am in FL. It just means that NASBA has not released them yet.
Can you give an update on the expected release of all sections? Thanks
Thanks Solo...!!! Cant wait anymore for the results ..!!!
@Gerrie @Trevor Hey! She got her AUD grade last Saturday. She took the test on Saturday, July 10th. I know it does not make sense...but she checked 100 times and it is def. the right section ID that she is using. This is the second time she has gotten with in 3-4pts of passing so she checked over and over again!! I cannot understand why I sat on July 3rd and I still do not have my score... the past week has been intense. I thought that the AUD grade was being released today!
How does the Ohio loophole works? Is the loophole only for the last exam you are waiting for or can you check for all exams?
Just got my FINAL score for BEC. I am in Illinois, so scores must be posted. Passed all four sections while working, not the greatest scores, but they will work AUD - 86 FAR - 75 REG - 75 BEC - 74, 76
Iam waiting for all the four parts i wrote from New hampshire board, does anyone from newhampshire got results, iam waiting anxiously ... i wrote exams on following dates BEC 07/09, REG 07/12 AUD 07/15 and FAR ON 07/24 can anyone tell me when can i get my results
@ Lisa - I have never heard of that lol, intersting though... congrats to her I guess, I wouldn't read into your grade because of it though. @MIA Girl - First I dont refer to mine as the Ohio loophole because I do not go through the ohio board like most people. I o right through mine (VT) if I can check the box for the test during re-registration and I am waiting on my grade.. I failed. I can do it for any section, did it for my first and second... Did not pass one and passed the other, so it worked both ways.
VA released. BEC Fail. Retake soon.
Hi, Anyone knows, NH will release BEC Scores. how abt Aud, i gave on 06/07
JD, I looked on VA and couldn't find my score...did you go to the virginia BOA site and use the "process" they have in place....? "...Enter your user id and password and click login. From the menu, select Manage My Account. Click the Start button under the Account Management section. Under the Eligible Licensee section, click edit next to the Exam Candidate title..."
Still waiting on BEC score for TX! This is just a cruel form of torture! Does anyone know how long it takes TX to release scores?
Kurt - Congrats, that must feel so awesome. Hope I have similar results next week with REG. AUD - 89 FAR - 83 BEC - 79 REG - Just gave me the score already!
Is anyone else waiting for scores from New York? I just received the "error - score not found." I took BEC on August 7th, and so I am not sure if I missed the cut off for Wave 1, or if NY is just slow to process?
NY should take 24-48 hours Liz. But you might be in Wave 2.
Kurt/Kelli, Any update for NH, When they will release BEC Scores, exam given on 03/07
Anyone in FL got their scores?????????
Elizabeth I'm in MA and took BEC on in mid july, and am getting the same message. I'm expecting my score later on, possibly 4:30 (24 hours after release). Good luck.
Ale- You probably won't get your score until tonight. I'm in FL too. And if they release before that you will see an update on here.
Passed BEC (86). My scores still aren't online I had to call the Virginia state BOA because I was a puddle of nerves, especially since others said theirs were online, but mine was not. After about 10 redials I got through, they said not all online scores are up yet. She read me my score on the phone.
Congrats to those who passed their sections/section..amazing accomplishment...still agonizing here in NH, not sure if I am in wave 2 or not anyway...hopefully will find out today/tomorrow....come on BEC.....let me know if I have passed 2 and only have 2 to go......................
Anyone get their OH scores?!
BEC is available now, I am in IL. Good luck everyone
Jeff: Any info as to whether or not AICPA will release any other section today? Thanks for your hard work!
CONGRATS to everyone that has passed!! I know the feeling of relief and being able to breath again. Still waiting on my BEC score!! Man, this is the worst waiting ever!! I am so stressed I am getting a headache. I may need to go check my blood pressure...
@Court, Texas usually posts the scores 1-2 business days after the AICPA releases, depending on how late in the day the scores were released. Texas always posts overnight, so if they aren't there in the morning you know you won't get your score til the next morning at the soonest.
Hi Any news on CO? Cannot see my scores yet thanks
I took REG 8/6 CA here not sure if my score will be released in wave 1 or wave 2 it's very close to the cutoff date, does anyone know?
Happy, happy... I passed BEC. I'm in CA.
Has anyone seen a score from IA yet? I'm not sure if I made it for the first wave release...took BEC on 8/4.
Still waiting on BEC scoeres in WA... it says score not found. Hopefully later today!!!
Still waiting on BEC scores in WA... it says score not found. Hopefully later today!!!
any news from WA state for BEC? Or any of the NASBA states? thx
CO is not up yet either... Took BEC on 08/07. Hoping I am wave 1...
@Gerrie My wife and I are from Iowa and she took her BEC on 8/6 and we havent found out. Please post when you do find out just to let us know if we made the cutoff.
Jeff, I havent seen any updates on AUD scores. Are they getting released today?
@ Trevour Thanks for your help!
if you are not sure what wave, aren't there dates that specify which one you'd be in. if you're hoping it changed, I guess you might be lucky I took BEC mid july in MA, nothing yet, but I'm sure it will be up 4:30 or so.
Missed BEC by one stinking point!!! GRRRR!
I checked Ohio and Vermont on Nasba and my BEC box is available for me to re-register for the exam. I guess that means I failed BEC. This exam was the deciding factor of me continuing or calling it a quit. I have been studying for the CPA exam since October 2008 and I'm ready to throw in the towel. I have taken the exam 9 times and failed ALL 9 times. I tried and frustrated.
Jeff, Could you please post your score release predictions for all four exams on the "CPA Exam Scores" page with the other updates? It would make it much easier to get an idea of when each exam will be released. Thanks!
@MIA girl - im NY and i checked OH trick as well, I was able to re-register - which i guess means i failed BEC as well -3rd time failing... dont give up yet, my suggestion would be to try another test, maybe REG. BEC you just never know with, the questions are extremely random.
@MIA Girl... I know it sucks to try so hard and not get the results to show for it, but I don't think you should give up. If you didn't actually get your score from your state then you still might have passed. I am not sure if the OH loophole actually works?.
@ pleaserespond1 I'm not usually the person who give up on anything but this exam is breaking me down. That was also my 3rd time taking BEC. I'm just tried of wasting my time and money which are the 2 major factors in why I want to give up. I needed to pass BEC to give me the motivation to pass the other 3 parts. Now that moviation is GONE. I'm going to think about this long and hard over the weekend. I will keep you posted. Good luck on your other exams!
MIA Girl & pleaserespond1, Have you two taken a review course or purchased study materials? Just from my own personal experience, I know there is no way I would have passed the sections that I have without a review course. The review courses give you sample questions, and I have even seen a couple of those sample questions on the exams! Don't give up, I know it's tough!! :/
@ Shy I called NASBA today and a rep informed me that my score was available and it takes 24hrs to post on the NASBA website. Since the section is available for me to re-register in the States of Ohio and Vermont I'm assuming that means I failed. :-(
MIA Girl - same question for you, what study materials are you using/have you used? Also evaluate your studying, and be honest with yourself, are you studying enough??? Next would be, is there a reocurring issue? What do you have a hard time grasping? do you have an accounting background??
I am waiting on my BEC score from VT and the suspense is killing me! If I passed, I am all done! If I failed I lose my AUD credit and will have to pass BEC and AUD. I have tried to re-register and am not able...I hope that means I passed! I called NASBA as well and they said VT should have the scores up in 24 hours.
@Mark, I am getting the same thing in VT, where in VT are you from?
Does anyone know when the loophole works? Is it only between the time the AICPA releases the score and the NASBA releases the score? I am waiting on Reg, just wanting to see if I can check now!!
@MIA girl - I hear you, I took aud and bec a few times before finally passing audit and once u pass one it gives you motivation. Then i passed reg on the first try so have 2 down - took BEC twice in the last few months and failed both times making it a total of 3 times. Again losing motivation with time and money, very frustrating... unfortunatly with these types of exams i think its just a matter of time and depends on the test you get- keep trying, it will happen!
@Mark & @Trevor Im from FL and and Nasba notified me that scores should be up for my state too. I also for the sake of it tried to re-register for BEC (my last section) in VT and it would not let me proceed. It said sorry all sections in process or something like that. Was that the message you guys received?
Yea (if its working), its sometime in the morning after AICPA releases to NASBA. Normally about the time the Indie states start to come out, from my experience.
Any words on Audit score release? MIA Girl.... Are working full time/have a family? I know how hard is to pass any section of the CPA exam especially when you work full time and have a family to take care of..... You might want to move a new section. Also, you might have to study consistently till you have a full control on a particular topic..... Please keep studying.... don't give up.
@shy - umm no, I live in VT so it may be different. I can go right into it and get all the way to register for a section. For exams that I have passed or have an open NTS for I cannot check the box. I have passed AUD, waiting on BEC, and taking FAR in two weeks so the only box I can check is REG.. If I could check BEC that presumably means I failed.. no messages though
FAR, FAR, where art thow?
BEC is a tough one. I passed it, but of the three sections I've passed (waiting patiently for FARE to make #4, hopefully this wave), it was my lowest score. I think the lack of a simulation might actually hurt some people - I feel I perform better/feel more confident on the sims, as I allot more time to doing them and apply more attention to detail. A second thing is that BEC is so general, with such a random mix of topics to get nailed on. I think my saving grace were my IT skills, which sadly, are better than my accounting skills. My suggestion - if you've done a few audits, take AUD first. I took that after working in public for about four years, and it was a breeze. I probably could have skipped studying for it.
Anyone heard anything for NJ yet?
@MIA Girl, My mom always tells me, what is worth having is not easy..With that said, I don't think you should give up. I know it is hard. I took BEC (my last part) earlier this year and I scored a 73, I thought I was going to die..I was soooo upset and hurt and MAD because I had studied sooooo hard and I failed but I could NOT quit because I had already put so much into the CPA.. Please Don't give up!! If you don't have any study material, you are welcome to mine. I have BECKER (and it is GREAT), BEC and FAR for 2010 which should be good for the rest of the year (because changes are coming next year). Again, if you need them, I don't mind.. I am praying I am done once I get my BEC score and I will no longer have a need for them. Let me know... whatever you decided..DONT give up!!! You'll never know what could be if you do..
@Trevor I am waiting on my BEC scores too and when I got to the Ohio site it won't let me select BEC or AUD. I am waiting on my BEC scores and I have an NTS for AUD. Does this mean I passed BEC or do you think it just won't let me select it because the results aren't out yet? This is my 6th time taking BEC, my last 2 times were 74 and I'm just praying I finally passed.
Anyone heard anything about AUD yet?
Mia Girl, I'm with everyone else - don't give up!! I'm waiting on BEC results as well. This is my first time taking any exam and I've told myself if I don't pass that at least I sort of know what to expect. I'm also working full time and a parent so I know it's challenging. I'm using the Wiley CPA books and CD to study. I must say the studying I did for the BEC section seemed much more difficult than the actual exam. So you may want to give Wiley a try.....I'll know if it's worth it once I get my results.
just tried the trick for MA and my seciton (BEC) it went through so thats not a good sign.. Damn
@Waiting, it would appear that way if the loophole is working, we are kind of the guinea pigs to verify wether or not NASBA closed the loophole. I would not assume anything at this point, but based on the loophole you passed BEC.
OK nevermind for anyone trying "the trick" in MA or a similar state, i was able to for BEC (score I'm waiting on) but was ALSO ABLE for AUD which I passed in a prior window. Wow, i got real depressed, but was relievd after trying audit. still, very worried. Good luck to all (again) oh and MIA girl, this is my 3rd or 4th time on BEC, first couple I didn't study well enough, but I still remember things from when I took the test and know that if the worst occurs, I can take it again with more knowledge/experience than the last time.
Anyone know the jurisdiction ID for TN?
@waiting what state did you register in? I don't know why the OH site wouldn't even let me in is it because I registered in FL. It allowed me to go through when I changed my SS number. Weird. I guess this waiting is making me try anything and everything just for some hope:)
OMG!!! I just tried the loophole for my state, Tennessee, and it would NOT let me register for BEC. It only gave me the sections I've never sat for as an option. I'm praying this means I passed. Again to those who didn't see my prior post - I used Wiley CPA exam book and CD to study.
What is this trick that they are talking about? Can anybody enlighten me? I took my first section (FAR) on July 18.
@ Shy I'm registered for Florida and it worked for me. I tried Ohio, Vermont, and Georgia.
@MIA Girl thanks for responding, but I tried GA, VT and OH and I got the same crazy message "error all sections in process" Bec is my last sections so I don't know what this means
@ Solo You are totally right! My Mom told me the same thing. She said I should stop beating myself up and keep going. Now I think that's a sign and I should not give up. I studied extremely well for BEC (considering the first 2 times I barely had time to prepare) and I felt very confident when I was taking the exam. I also felt prepared for REG (69) FAR (63) AUD (67) and I'm too ashamed to mention my 2 BEC scores. Still waiting for the 3rd one I think I failed. I'm currently using 2009 Becker and my software expires on 10/28/2010. If you are welling to let me use your software that would be terrific because I have spent so much money on material. I will be forever greatful!
@ Shy Hopefully that means you passed! I will be praying for you! Good luck!
Anyone get there score from PA yet? I'm really getting antsy.
Has anyone seen BEC scores posted for NASBA for Indiana yet?
@ Miracle, Wraitingforscore, and Trevor A friend told me Wiley was good. I'm currently using 2009 Becker self study and I thought it was suppose to be the best. I worked for a public accting firm for 2 yrs and now I'm in industry (3 months). I believe I studied extremely well the last time around for all four parts-REG 69, AUD 67, FAR 63, and I'm waiting for BEC which I believe I failed. I honestly dont know what to do other than getting newer material and keep studying until I pass. I do very well on the HW and I do understand the material.
@Shy - I got that same crazy message as well. BEC is my last section and I am waiting on that. I hope that is a good sign. I tried two different states and I got that same error message. I called the board and they said my score is in and would be available within 24 hrs (online). I now live in FL but I am registered under NEW Jersey board (where I am from. I hope all goes well. I tried to have her give me my score on the phone but she wouldn't do it..Good luck to you and everyone that is waiting!! @MIA Girl - no worries, I am more than happy to help. Trust me, everyone on this board knows the drama, hardship and everything else that goes into the CPA so whatever I can do to help another is not at all a problem. Here is my email - email@example.com - you can send me your address..where in FL are you? Like I said I have FAR and BEC that are 2010. Let me get my BEC score and prayerfully I passed and I will send you both BEC and FAR--CDs and books... they are highlighted and all..probably have some notes in them too..so hope you don't mind..
@ Solo I currently live in Dallas. Thanks again! I will email you my info. I hope and pray you passed! You have given me hope to keep going. :-)
@MIA Girl, I just remembered I also have the Final Review and flashcards, I will send those as well. Every bit helps! Thanks for your prayer..Can't ever get enough..Make sure you pray for you too and don't stop. Believe me prayer helps..that is what kept and keeps me going. There were many time I felt like given up..because this process takes a lot out of you even when you pass a section but leading to that point, it takes a lot. Sometimes we just need someone to tell us what we know lies deep within us. Glad I can give you the hope you need to continue..Just hold on to it and think about the end..you passing all sections...that was also my inspiration..seeing a light at the end of the tunnel (even when it wasn't there..yet.. Seeing the CPA behind my name...Anyways, will keep you posted on my BEC score. I am obsessing over the NASBA website..I keep refreshing the page and hoping my score will pop up but nothing yet. I cant focus on anything else but that!!
Does the trick work for PA? I took auditing on th first week of july. I just went in on the nasba website to PA and tried to register for my next exam and I was not able to register for Bec, Reg, or Aud. Bec and Reg I passed during prior periods but I am waiting on Aud. Has anyone tried this in PA?
@ Solo Thanks you! Thank you! Thank you! I sure will! Prayer does change everything! Keep me posted on your passing score! :-) I'm at work myself and I havent accomplished much. The score release process is a motivation killer.
This loophole stuff seems to not take the edge off... lol. I'm a MI candidate but just went through VT to check it out. I am anticipating BEC and FAR scores this wave. AUD and REG are still open on my NTS. The FAR box is the only one available to check. I'm confident in my spectacular failure on FAR, but the box being available seems odd since score release hasn't started yet? Good luck to all and crossing fingers to find out for sure tonight!
Has anyone received FAR scores in Illinois yet? I took the exam July 7th. I'm so anxious for my results!
@MIA Girl - the Wiley CPA review I'm using doesn't expire. The CD is loaded with thousands of questions for each section...and broken down even further into subsections. Go to their website for a tutorial of the CD. I'm currently using the 2010 books and CD, but I may upgrade to the 2011 version. There are also questions in the book as well. The best to everyone!!! I think this waiting on the results has been more stressful than the actual exam.
I don't understand the loophole, I have passed 3 sections but I am still able to click on all sections to re-register. What's the deal?
Has anyone seen scores from PA for BEC?
Nothing from PA yet.
@ohioloophole, so you can still click on the sections even though you passed them?? that gives me hope for bec... i'm from NY and i tried the loophole in OH and NJ and the bec section was available for me to re-register... i was soo bummed this morning... your message got my hopes up!! only time will tell :) Good luck everyone!!
@ Ohioloophole and Waitinggg Hum......now I'm confused! Does the loophole works or not?! I have not been in a good mood ever since I seen BEC available for me to re-register. Is their still hope for us? I guess we will have to wait for an OFFICIAL score. I will keep you guys posted.
@ Mircale THANKS! :-)
I haven't seen BEC for NJ (a NASBA state) yet. I took it on July 2, so I think I would be in the first wave!
Yes--I am currently waiting on AUD. I tried the loophole just to see how it works and I am able to re-register for all 4 parts even though I have passed 3 already. I entered my SS, personal information, etc, then I was able to click on all four parts to re-register. I am not sure if I have to keep submitting more information or when exactly does the graying out start, but at one of the menu options, I was able to click each section to re-register.
MIA girl, I was in a bad mood too and decided to log on to check the forum and more than one person said that they can still register for sections that they already passed so maybe that means that NASBA plugged the loophole (i'm praying to god that it happened!!) and i know it such a killer not passing but just keep your head up- solo did a great thing for you in giving his/her materials- that's awesome, i wish you the best!!
Does the loophole only work once AICPA releases your score and you are waiting on NASBA? Maybe that's why I am able to re-register for all four parts? However, I'd assume that three of my sections would be already be grayed out.
@ohioloophole, once you entered your info (name address, blah blah blah) and you go on to the next screen, you see the 4 sections for the exam. the box for the sections that you passed should "grey out"... so technically any remainding sections that your able to "click on" you either didn't take or didn't pass... thats why i believe that the loophole might be plugged... like i said I'M PRAYINGGG!!!!
Just got my score for BEC out here in Washington. Passed with an 86.
AICPA already released BEC scores yesterday... so the time for the loophole is now... but now that i'm thinking about it i don't think AICPA released AUD yet- maybe that's why you can click on the sections?? i dunno i'm getting soooo antsy.. ugh this sucks.
any news on FL????
waiiting.., loophole DID NOT WORK FOR ME I passed AUD in MA, it let me re-register. took BEC midjuly, my score better be up at 4:30 or im gonna be pissed haha
@mrguy, i really hope they plugged it... i feel like everyone is pulling their hair out waiting for their scores... i can't even work and we're doing year end closing!! haha @danieltodd, congrats on passing, hopefully we can all be so fortunate!! :)
So Aud scores should be released from the AICPA tomorrow? Is that correct? How come not today?? I want to get my grade back already!
What number have people been calling to ask NASBA if their score will be available for this wave 1 release?
so stupid question but with no score yet... July 13=wave 1 for Nasba im assuming. if so, GIVE ME MY SCORE.
For those of you waiting for scores in Texas i just called TSBPA and they said scores would be released to us on Monday. So that pretty much sucks.
April, the number is 800-CPA-EXAM, but they don't tell you your score... and they have it right in front of their screens too ughh!!! but anyway, the rep said that we should be receiving our scores within 24-48 hours... so all we have left to do is wait, wait, wait!! :'(
...by the way im in New York. I assume it varies by state...
Still waiting for Iowa!!! Decided to take a break from the "score-clicking" and bake some cookies...nothing like a cup of coffee, homemade butter cookies, and Golden Girls to make you feel good inside! :)
Waittttting...800-CPA-EXAM tells you if your in the current wave or not? and how do you know that they have your score in front of you? Also, does AICPA have to release first?
did ohio release scores yet?
@ohio, call 800-CPA-EXAM and when you reach a rep ask them if nasba released your score... they'll ask you for your name and state and then they'll tell you if the score is being proccessed.. i asked the rep (caitlin) if she can give me my score and she said that they can't do it over the phone... but remember the AICPA releases the scores to NASBA then NASBA releases the scores to us... so if AICPA hasn't released the scores, then NASBA can't give them to us...
well its been 25 hours or so now. never taken this long i feel like (not fact, just thought), im going nuts. no work getting done here either, my boss is with me though, he wants to know as bad as i do haha.
Any news on FAR release dates?
Fars for MA is not post yet. So stressed.
this is insane ... i don't understand why they need to stagger the releases. can't they just release all the scores at once??? gah ... this is really putting a damper on my studying for BEC :( i'm sure a lot of us have exams near the end of this window ...
I just called NASBA to get more information on FAR release dates, the person informed me that they do not have a date, and that they have until the end of September to release them... my state is PA... not sure if it works the same for others... I took FAR July 1st... cannot wait to see if I'm finally done with the CPA exam... ugh!
15 more minutes of the NASBA Twitter account being staffed for the day... Surprised there aren't any score release announcements yet. Was hoping for an odd twist in the release order and have FAR pop out next.
Tried calling 800-CPA-EXAM and they wouldn't tell me much. Waiting on my last exam; REG. Going crazy!
Does anyone know why this site pushes comments to the right and makes them longer are less wide as you scroll down? I'm using Safari...
Just called 1-800-cpaexam...looks like no AUD today, what a letdown!!!
Does anybody know what the exact cut-off date was for wave 1? I took BEC August 6th and am hoping that it is in wave 1. Thanks
Man, this waiting game is for the birds!!!! What is going on with NJ? why have they not posted the BEC score yet? This is consuming my thoughts..I haven't gotten anything done today..NOTHING!!
@James My friend took it August 11th and got his score this morning. Were in IL.
@James My friend took BEC August 13th and got his results today, we were very surprised. Live in IL.
Anybody gotten scores from GA?
any news update on BEC scores from PA?
@Sarah @Dan Really? That's a good surprise! So I may get my AUD score too? I took BEC on 8/4 and AUD on 8/11...hopefully!
I'm in WA. Waiting on AUD. Took it on July 3rd. Any news on release of AUD?
@ John I use Safari too, and mine does the same thing. Not sure why though. When I'm on my PC it doesn't do it...weird.
@Michelle Waiting on scores from GA too. Took FAR 7/29 and BEC 8/10. Hoping I'm in the first wave for BEC...
What is taking Iowa so long?
Has anyone heard anything from Florida?? I took BEC July 1st and every time I enter my information it says Error: Score not found. It's killing me, I must know! :)
Lisle...Don't worry I haven't received my score either in FL. This is my first exam, I don't know if they usually continue posting the scores at night or we"ll have to wait until tomorrow :S
@lisle, I also took the exam July 1st in FL so I feel your pain. NASBA did tell me the scores were there but not yet released:(
any ohio scores?
@KDK None yet. I'm checking religiously
OK, so why in the world does it take so long...for GOD's sake this is a computerized test, people! Still no word on AUD???
I'm waiting on a FL BEC score too and I feel like I'm about to have a heart attack if I don't find out soon! This score will HOPEFULLY be my third part passed...last one - REG - next Thursday!
Still no scores, this is ridiculous...I should be in bed but I keep thinking my scores will be here soon, so I keep checking....ahhh..
any word on NY BEC yet
I just got BEC 76 MI board.
@BEC_MI - Congrats!!! I am still waiting on my BEC score from NJ. Have no idea why they are so slow with it!
Still waiting on BEC here in Alabama....
Oh, Florida, how I hate thee! Still waiting obviously...
OH scores went up a few minutes ago! Passed with an 84! soooo happy to have passed my first one!
I'm still waiting on my MI BEC, I'm jealous of the other individual who already got theirs.
GREEN with jealousy here too!
heyyyyyyyyyyyyyy iam done with BEC got 76 first attempt from new hampshire board, now iam waiting for other 3 results, REG, AUD AND FAR all the best to everyone who are waiting for results
Did anyone try the OH loophole and received an actual score that was different from what they anticipated (i.e based on the loophole you thought you passed and actually failed or vice versa?)
Still no score on BEC taken on 7/24. Should I be worried about a borderline score?
NY scores are up. Passed with 80 =]]
Passed BEC with 85 from MI board....first attempt :)
Do all scores come out at the same time for the state if they are in this wave? For instance I saw that someone from MI got a score, but I haven't gotten mine from MI and I took it on 7/20. Does this mean that I may have a borderline score?
@state? same deal here im from NY - someone said nY scores are up - i havent recieved mine... took BEC on 8/6...did the ohio loophole today and according to it i would have failed... but no final score yet...
I passed BEC on the first try and it was my first CPA exam!!! 79!!!
congratulation all GOD Blesses Us
7/5 BEC in NY but no socre yet... what does it all mean?!
To everyone worried about a borderline score because they haven't received their tests results back yet--STOP WORRYING! I took my FAR exam the first week in April this year and I freaked out and thought I didn't pass or I got a 75 or something when my scores didn't come out in the first wave. I got my test results back in the second wave, at the end of June, and I got an 81! I think they just like messing with our heads or something. Has anyone heard when they are releasing AUD in Washington?
@pleaserespond1 I did the OhioLoop hole today and according to it I would have passed, but still not score...good luck...hopefully neither of us will have to wait long! :)
my girlfriend got her bec score and i didn;t in NY i took the test 7/30
took bec 7/26 and no score tonight!!
@state -- are u in NY as well - so weird i hope the OH loophole was right for you, but wronggg for me... who knows! i took my test aug 6 so think i should be in wave 1...
Did anyone get NJ scores?
Any idea if they're done updating scores for tonight? Did we just miss out or what?
Jeff... any thoughts on BEC in NY? Does NASBA just hate me?
Has anyone noticed that the NASBA score release page is loading REALLY slow? It could be my internet connection but I don't think so....
It hates us all. And the feeling is mutual!
@pleaserespond1 I'm in MI, hopefully we'll get them soon.
NASBA is slow for me here too.
Hopefully it means they're doing some MAJOR batch processing!!!
NASBA of PA I hate you.
nasba website is loading really slow b/c of all the activity - everyone is checking to see if his/her score is up. I took bec 7/26 NY and My score isn't up....I'm going crazy here!!!!
PA BEC Scores are up
NY SCORE JUST GOT UP an HOUR AFTER my girlfriends release...be patient
@Russ Thanks for giving us hope!!
Any news on when they are going to release Audit scores???
No scores for FL yet
Just wanted to let TN people know, scores for BEC are on the website. I took BEC July 1 I was checking for my score online all day. Just checked again now and I passed! YAY!
Anyone received any scores from AL yet? Slowly losing it here!
FL scores in!!!! I passed BEC 80 Last exam I am finally done!!!! I wish the best for everyone still waiting.
Nevermind all my nonsense and belly-aching.... PASSED BEC in NY baby!!!!!!!!
ughhh..70 guess I deserved it for the amount of time I put in.
Did anyone receive their BEC scores from PA? I took it on August 7th so I fear that I will be in wave 2.
took it july 1, no word yet GA
Glad to know I'm not the only one who hasn't gotten their scores yet. I'm totally stressing over this....
Still waiting on Jersey took BEC 7/7
Still nothing for MO yet :(

Does anyone have any idea about FAR release?
still nothing for BEC from PA....
Iowa scores are in! Unfortunately I'll have to re-take... :( oh well...try, try, again....
I got found out I got a 72 on BEC. I just open a bottle of wine and I think I'm going to drink myself to sleep tonight.
@ ALE Florida is available. I just got my failing BEC score.
@ Shy CONGRATULATIONS! I will drink for you!
Passed BEC!!! Indiana scores are in
Heart attack averted! Passed BEC - one left to go!
The NASBA website is deathly slow. I need everyone to stop checking their scores so I can get mine! :) Maybe they're still posting scores??? Is it too late?
@ Solo Still not available???!!! Keep me posted!
I am in CO and gave BEC on 6th Aug and still not got the result. When should i expect the result. has anybody from CO got the result so far
@Aaron That's what i would like to know.If they're done posting i'm ready for bed
@ Amit Saw CO was out in another forum
bec NY 7/27. well my score just went up, and i failed. I hate this crap.
just passed with an 81..
Jersey is up. Praise God, I passed!! Thank you Jesus!!!! I am DONE and can now put this behind me and move on to the next chapter of my life...
Scores out in Colorado! I passed! All DONE!

Co is up... Passed with 85!!!!
Come on TX your killing me! If we don't get an email tomorrow morning we won't hear till Monday :(
I'm waiting on Texas too! Why are we getting ours so late?!
@MIA Girl... I passed, all done...so email me when you are ready!! Congrats to everyone who passed. Best wishes to those who are still waiting and for those who didn't pass, Please don't give up, keep at it..You'll get em next time!! Be Bless!
Did anyone get a PA AUD score?
Thanks Peanut. I cleared my BEC, scored 86. Which one will be released next and when. I gave all four together.
CO is out. Got 83 in BEC. Passed...!!! 3 more to go...!!! When will AUD be released???
@Mia Girl same heree - failed with a 72 ouch... cheers! ugh.
For those in TX, scores have been posted. I am very grateful that I passed. Best of luck to everyone, wondering if AUD will be annouced today
Does anyone know when FAR will be released?
I sat for the exam on 8/7 and my score posted with wave 1. Maybe this will help some other people who were concerned about the wave 1/wave 2 cutoff determine if they made it in wave 1.
For those of you who are interested, I tried to sign up for BEC yesterday in Ohio and it wouldn't let me and then I found out late last night that I passed BEC, the loophole may still work, curious if anyone else had the opposite happen?
Jeff - any word on AUD?
Anyone know anything about Audit release for PA? Called Nasba yesterday @ 5pm, they said it would be between now and september.
Anybody have any thoughts/experience on having BEC regraded if you get a 74?
congrats to all those passed. if someone passes BEC or Aud now, how does the credit system work - how many months left before others must be passed?
Tori, I'm in TX and took BEC in July. My score isn't posted yet??? However, on the candidate menu I have 3 credits which would indicate I passed. On the "Review your CPA Examination Testing Activities, Scores, and Credits" it still only says 2 credits and BEC as pending. What do you think? I don't want to get excited then be crushed. Why isn't my score showing?
@Curious - it's not worth it to get a score regraded. They almost never change a score (the test was already scored by 3 different people or so already)Besides, you can study, retake your exam, and get your scores before you'd hear back from a re-score. I got a 74 in REG last window. It really sucks, but just take the exam again. @chandra - you get 18 months from the date of your first passed test.
@Jon, I would probably say that you have passed, however you can call the board and say there is a discrepancy and see if they can tell you for sure. They are usually prompt at answering the phone 512-305-7851 @Curios, because of the quality control and the process with which they ratify the scores, I hear it almost always results in no change. However it maybe worth the shot, you can only appeal if your board allows you to do so, here is the link, to ger more info on the appeals process: https://www.aicpa.org/BecomeACPA/CPAExam/PsychometricsandScoring/ScoreReviewAndAppeals/Pages/computer_faqs_rescore.aspx
@Rski Thank u very much waiting for Aud, Far & Reg - took all 4 sections at the same time Got 82 in BEC - i thought I had done it very well and expected close to 90- and now I am very nervous for others because here is my take on my performance Aud - very well Far - reasonable Reg: 50:50 - left one tab in sim 1 and sim 2 - though completed communication in both tabs the actual results are always different from what you expect????????????
I'm not really good at judging how well I did. For BEC (79) and FAR (81) I had no idea how I did when I left the test center. REG (74) I knew it was going to be close whether I passed of failed because I got quite a few questions I didn't really know. AUD (waiting) and REG retake (waiting) I thought I did well on, but I'm still waiting, so I guess we'll see!
Has any one heard about FAR... Took it early in July. Do you think it will be released this week or next?
Thanks Tori. I see now when clicking on the view results it states at the very bottom that I have an advisory score of 80. I guess that means the AICPA has scored it and the TSBPA hasn't rattified it yet? I think I'm good to go. I wasn't paying attention to detail earlier. Thanks again.
NYS has now posted BEC scores. I just retrieved my score. I passed, but the joy is fleeting since I am so nervous about Reg. Let's hope they start releasing the others soon!!
I passed BEC (79)!!! 1 down, 3 to go!!!
@Len, Typical order is BEC then AUD. Since BEC was already released on Wednesday, I would assume (prob wrong) that AUD will be released to NASBA today and scores will be available over the weekend. FAR release sometime next week, probably in the middle.
God...i can't wait anymore. I really want to find out my AUD score.... taking BEC tomorrow. I thought i wasn't going to check another71 site before the BEC exam, but i am really anxious to know my score. Let's go big daddy AICPA. Wish me luck!
If the AICPA releases anymore scores today it will take a day for NASBA to post them. NASBA doesn't post over the weekend so we'll have to wait until at least Monday to see any new results. :(
I took REG on 8/14/10, any guesses when wave 2 scores are going to be released?
@breezy- Wave 2 will start releasing scores end of Sept. I also took REG 8/14 so I will be waiting with you....
@ pleaserespond1 Ugh......I woke up this morning with a headache of course. I was hoping yesterday score was a dream but it was not. Now I have to move on and try VERY hard to pass all 4. Back to the drawing board. Goodluck to you!
@ Solo CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so happy you passed and I met you!!!!! I'm sending my info to you now. Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) :-) :-)
Just got the following text from NASBA: Good morning! No news yet on addtl updates. Will let you know as soon as we hear any new #cpaexam news. Congrats to those who passed BEC.
I'm in MS, a independent state that believes in mailing out the scores via snail mail. I'm thinking maybe I just need to move to another state at this point...The wait is killing me! And I sit for AUD Monday..I can't think for being anxious.
I need studying advice. I never studied for two or more exams at the same time.I'm trying to firgure out the best way to do so. I'm currently studying for AUD. I'm on Becker Lecture 3. I found out I failed BEC so I wanted to jungle studying for BEC and AUD. I would like to take BEC 10/2 and maybe AUD 10/9. Please advise.
Jeff - why no update on when AUD will be released?
Has anyone heard an update as to when the AUD scores might be released? I took AUD on 7/7 and taking FAR 8/28...It would be nice to know the scores before I go into my last exam....
Getting the feeling Jeff knows something about AUD but it isn't what we want to hear so he's not sharing....
@ Gerrie I don't think that's true...I received two exam scores on Saturday during the day...which I am guessing NASBA released on Friday? All we can do is hope they release something today...
I took BEC. on Aug.10th, so my score will be first or secned wave? please help, cause I tried Ohio on line application, they let me reapply for BEC. only, is that mean I failed???:-( Any one can reply back to meeeeeeeeeeeee.
Unfortunately, you will be in wave 2. They said the cutoff was probably around the 7th of August.
I took AUD July 22nd. Does anyone know when that score will be available?
I took BEC August 9th (first monday after cut off) and got my score on NASBA.org this AM- 76 PASSSSSS BABY PASSSSSS!!! NOW JUST WAITING ON REG
No Cali scores this weekend? Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- Closed signs went up at California agencies Friday as a mandatory furlough went into effect for government employees in an effort to resolve California's $19 billion budget deficit.
I took AUD on 8/2....has anyone heard anything on when the scores will be released?
All those that tried the "Ohio Loophole" and think they failed, don't lose hope just yet! I was so bummed all day yesterday because it was letting me re-register for BEC, come to find out this morning that i passed with an 80! :) So keep your head up and don't worry until you get your ACTUAL score!!
Does anyone know what's going on with audit?? This wait is so cruel.
Anyone in MS received BEC score yest?
So what's up with Aud scores?? I thought the AICPA would release them already?!?!
Really, where is AUD? I think all scores (4 parts) should be declared before 23th of Aug.
what does mean Ohio loophole? please anyone answer me.
really??? wow ... i can't believe two days will be passing w/out any more releases other than BEC. @ Oras: If you go to the discussion forum, there is an in depth description about how the Ohio loophole works.
I cant believe AICPA did not release today...
OhioLoophole, So you think that the AICPA isn't releasing any scores today at all??
I tried the Ohio Loophole and I wasn't able to see anyn sections of the exam. I couldn't proceed from the main screen i got a response that all sections of the exam are being processed. I am waiting for AUD and didn't took REG yet. Does anyone know what that means?
I'm waiting AUD and FAR, so anybody knows about them.
Any news about Reg guys?? What's its order of release?
AUD scores have been released to NASBA!
I hope they're quicker in TX for AUD than they were for BEC! Does anyone know if TX releases scores on the weekend?
So can we expect to see the AUD scores Monday night at ~10pm?
Since audit was just released, what comes next FAR or REG?
How soon can we get the AUD score? Can somebody tell me how to check the score on NASBA website?
Good news, I have received SMS from NASBA, 7,629 AUD socres have been released by AICPA today and it will take 24 to 48 hours to realse them
@ T.T go to NASBA.org then CPA exam, then choose your state then go to Score Icon and click it and fill your ID and birthday
Tks, Oras. It has been a long long week for all of us.
Yeas, and i have now BEC on 30 Aug
@Oras this service is not available for CA candidates... >_< I don't like this wait at all.......
Nice late AICPA release!...Jeff--has NASBA ever released over the weekend?
@Cat Based on my experience from last test window and Jeff's guide, the CA candidates should be able to get their AUD score by tomorrow morning. :)
@Jack, Does your last post also apply to IL scores?
@Dan--I'm pretty sure that IL has released on a Saturday before. I'm in IL, so I REALLY hope they will tomorrow!! :) Good luck to you!
@ cat, Yes the wait is very bad and i think if they don't release them today, the results will go to Mon.
Does anyone Know if NASBA will release scores in MN over the weekend?
HUGE good luck wishes to everyone waiting for scores. BEC finished and working on FAR. I can see why it's called THE BEAST. Try to have a happy weekend - study time at my house!!
Can anyone tell me whether AICPA has released the AUD scores to NASBA and when will the CO scores will be posted
@ Amit, AICPA has released them on Fri 6PM and NASBA is predicted to release them from 24 to 48 hours
@ halfway to a..... I think REG going to be the last... I am getting crazy day after day... Waiting for REG and it is my last part!!!! Good luck
CA is reporting AUD scores.
Anyone know how to check scores on NASBA? TX is an independent state so I'm wondering if the only way for me to check my score is on the TSBPA website.
My latest FAR/REG predictions are posted on the top of this post.
Hi Jeff I took far on 8/9 and Reg on 8/12 - is there a likelihood of these dates being on wave 1? thanks
@chandra: From personal experience, I took REG on 2/12 and was in the wave 1 score release for that quarter. It's possible but you never know until scores are released. The date you took the exam + whether or not you got a new simulation will determine when yours gets released. Get Jeff's free e-book - it's full of great information. I am waiting on FAR - my final exam.......come on AICPA release FAR next!!
For anyone waiting on scores in IL, I received two exam scores on a Saturday before...so lets hope that happens again this time! If all goes well, I will have one more to go! REG 84 BEC 80 AUD ? FAR 8/28
Anyone know if Louisiana AUD scores have been released.
Does anyone know if Ohio releases scores on a Saturday? Thanks.
Does anyone know if Mass will release over the weekend? or when to expect the AUD scores?
AUDIT SCORES ARE UP IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA!!!
@Rachel Thanks :) Yeah - guess just have to wait - but impatience is contagious for CPAs-in-wating
@Mo: I'm in LA - LA is NASBA state - I don't believe NASBA has ever released over a weekend. I'd look for it Monday night around 9:15
Thank you Rachel.
has anyone in CA not receiving his score? I hope they are not done yet I didn't get mine. I don' t want to wait for another month! what are the chances of getting new sims? This is my last section give me a peace of mind
AUD is out in CA!! Passed all exams in 6 months!!! Thanks to everyone in this forum for supporting each other!! Good Luck to you all!!
IL posted the scores. I passed, I passed, I passed, got 89.
Jeff, What's wrong with releasing FAR on Monday? Didn't they always release on Fridays and Mondays previously? Is yours just a conservative estimate or you got tipped off?
i am also in CA, why can't I see my AUD score? why? I took the exam on July 23. Please tell me...
Does anyone know what the first wave cutoff date is? I took my audit exam on August 6th but didn't get me scores. Am I going to have to wait another month?
I'm in CA and I took AUD on Aug 10th and received my score this morning, so the cutoff was AT LEAST 8/10
I am in CA also and have not yet received AUD scores. I took it the first week of July. c'mon! I do not want to be placed in wave 2!
@in CA It's weird. Someone taking the AUD exam on August got the score already.....what's going on with ours?
@K It might be that we got a new SIM and automatically got places in wave 2.
Jeff: I think this question was asked already, but didn't see a respone. Has NASBA ever released on a Saturday?
I also took AUD in the first week of July...I really hope we didn't get a new SIM because that would mean we would automatically be placed in Wave 2! That would horrible...I am in IL and scores have been posted and I have NOT received my score! Does anyone know if you can tell if you got a new SIM? Does anyone remember derivatives on their exam?
Has anyone received their score for AUD in Alabama?
Kill me~~~><" one more month...shoot me....
I am in IL. Still not posted AUD...
Has anyone received their score for AUD in NY? Anyone know if NY posts scores on weekends?
IL posted AUD. Fail with a 70. I thought I did really well! BOOOO! :(
score in CA received. not pass... >_<||| need to try again. congra to those passed, and goodluck to those still trying
Anyone in MI get their AUD score?
Cat, where did you find the score? I signed into CA account, but no score yet. tks.
@T.T. Just go to the Status and at the bottom of the page, the score is sitting behind the AUD attendance note. and the following block, you will see a detailed score report. hope you find it and pass, good luck
cat,Tks. Check every minute, still not showing any score.
Anyone received AUD scores from TX yet?
Hey Brandon, I'm in MI and no scores posted yet. I will be calling them Monday am :)Hope this helps.
NASBA doesn't release on Saturdays...AUD should be out Monday night. Be sure to download the e-book above...it sheds more light on this. Jeff
CA score posted..I PASSED...congrats to anyone who passed..for anyone who didn't..don't give up...you will get it next time.
1/2 way thru, where did you get your score? I'm in CA too, but my score was not there yet.
Same thing - I'm in CA, took AUD on 7/31, and can't see a score on the STATUS page.
HI,! Is anyone get AUD in DELAWARE?
I took BEC July 28th in MI but have not received my score yet...any ideas if anymore scores will be released for BEC on Monday?
Jeff, Are you just predicting that Reg will be released on Thursday, or do you have inside information? Thanks!!
yea why is reg being released after FAR? I thought its usually released before FAR?
@ Ohio Loophole not always accurate! - Was it letting you re-register for any other sections that you had passed? Were any of your other sections grayed out for sections you passed or active NTS?
I took BEC on Aug, 13, jurisdiction is Maine. While, my score was released already.
I am away from home and don't have internet access save my phone, so I can't download Jeff's document. Can someone tell me if I should attempt to find internet access to check my FAR score? I am unsure if I made the wave one cut, I took FAR on August 11. Thanks!!
Anyone in Virginia got AUD score? I took Aud on 7/16, and nothing for me yet. Hope I am not in wave 2.
@Smoke - No FAR yet per Jeff's predictions....8/24 is the prediction...
I realize that but I want to know if I should even go to the trouble of finding internet access and checking later this week or if I am in wave two and won't get my score until September. I took my test August 11 so I know I am close to the cutoff. Thanks again!
@Smoke... you're definately in wave 2 so I wouldn't worry about trying to find internet access
My FAR and REG predictions are based just on my guess...I haven't heard any updates yet.
@Jeff - another71.com I took AUD on July 23rd and I don't see the score still. I guess I am in wave 2 group so do you know when they release wave 2?
@ K - Why would you think you are in Wave 2? Jeff said scores do not come out on the wknd and are coming out on monday so you still have time to get them. Where are you from?
Jeff, Why do you think REG is coming out after FAR? Isnt it usually the other way around?
Can anyone tell me when will NASBA upload the CO scores for AUD?
@Amit Same here. Waiting for my CO scores for AUD.
REG always came out 2nd or 3rd. Lately - within the past 6 months, REG has been last several times. I also predicted it would be last in the last window and it happened. REG could very well be third - it's just my guess based on what I've seen in the past. -Jeff
Is Ohio loophole always right? I got the FAR section shaded and BEC was not, then I received BEC and scored 73, does this mean I passed FAR????????????
I'm took FAR in July. I'm taking AUD on Friday August 27. Would you check your score before or after taking the second exam? I have a feeling I didn't pass because I didn't have time to do most of one of the simulations. I did do both communications.
Good question DC. Here is what I think... If you have time to change your study habits or help in any way, go ahead and look at it. The first exam is always the hardest because you don't know how to study and don't know if its working. If you won't find out until a week before the exam so it won't help, then don't. Considering your test is in 4 days, I doubt it will help, so I would just wait until the right after the test.
Any news from TX anyone?
Thanks for the excellent advice Michael.
Its monday and the forum is so silent?? I thought it will be on fire what with Aud results . Any news from CO guysssssssssssssssssssss
@Madison, I am waiting on my AUD score in Texas and I have not seen or heard anything yet. Checking every so often to see if anything has been updated.
Took Aud on July 1 in NY (Wave 1). Nasba hasnt posted results yet. Does any1 know when will they be posted? Also, if I can find out earlier? This is my last exam.
I'm waiting on NY too ahh! havent heard anything! how long after AICPA releases, does NASBA usually post for NY?
I'm waiting on NY too! how long after AICPA releases scores does NASBA usually release for NY?
I took Reg on Monday August 9th. Is there any chance of my score being released in Waive 1 (assuming neither one of the simulations were new), or should I just expect my score in waive 2?
I really hope FAR is released today
Anyone from Texas get their audit score yet?
tx, I haven't gotten my audit score yet either and I was in wave 1. TX takes longer than other states based on what I've seen though. My BEC score came in atleast a day later than every other state I saw on this blog. If I didn't get any new simulations I expect to get my score tomorrow or Wednesday. Don't hold your breath!
I took FAR on July 23. I will be taking BEC on the 27th. I really just want to know what I got so i'll stop checking every other half hour. Whether I passed or failed wont make a difference on how i perform on the next test. Knowing what I got will at least give me more time to study because I wont be constantly checking. Reg 93 on 01/29/10; Aud 82 on 05/24/10 FAR? on 08/23/10 BEC take on Friday.
IL test taker. I took AUD July 15th, and didn't receive my score. Is a new simulation the only reason for this?
I am in IL. Not received yet. I guess nobody get score yet.
Has anyone rec'd an AUD score from Utah?
any new update on FAR release?
Is the AICPA release for REG exam Thursday? or the NASBA/Independant State score release?
Has anybody from NJ been able to use the OH loophole? for me its been saying "currently in progress" and I have seen so many people say that they have been able to use it from diff. states, so just wondering if any one from NJ has been able to use it. Thanks,
Dear NASBA: HURRY UP AND POST THE AUD SCORES!! I can't get any work done today because I keep thinking about my score and checking it.
Anyone who sat in PA get their AUD score yet?
@matt-attack I'm going through the same problem. I hope they're posted soon and I really hope I didn't end up getting a new simulation...
Still no AUD scores in MN. I took AUD on 7/3 --- it has been too long....
I'm also in IL waiting on my FAR score. I took it 7/7. I'm becoming more and more anxious!
I found that NASBA has a twitter account. They have been giving updates on a fairly regular basis. Even if you dont have a twitter account, just google "NASBA twitter" and you can see their postings.
I'm in TX and I emailed TSBPA 30 mins ago and they told me that they are expecting to receive AUD scores tomorrow! Good luck to everyone!
@Lillan, Thanks for your info. I hope to access my score of aud tomorrow....cross finger ing
For the two from IL that didn't receive scores yet, I'm guessing you had a new simulation or your score was borderline. I took AUD on July 24th and I received my score on Saturday. Couldn't believe my eyes when Illinois posted scores on a Saturday!!
TX always posted 2 days after NASBA releases the scores, not counting weekend. Therefore, since it was released on Friday, TX will get the scores tomorrow. (Tuesday) And they post at 3am too. So, if you are anxious you can get up and check it at 3:01!
NASBA's twitter account just said another 1808 AUD scores and 8625 FAR scores were released by AICPA to NASBA
1808 AUD scores and 8625 FAR scores were released. Woo! Now post them! =P
Good news, AICPA have released 1,808 AUD and 8,625 FAR today now at 4:31PM Mon.
FAR and more AUD scores just released. Check NASBA twitter for details.
Does anyone know if it's a bad thing if my audit score is released after the primary audit release?
@lynninfl Bad thing? What like pass or fail? I doubt it has any reflection on your score.
Will the loophole work in non-NASBA states?
@Brandon - Thanks! I called NASBA earlier and they didn't have my score yet so it was probably released today. Fingers crossed.
This waiting is terrible! I thought I would get my audit score today, and if not today I would be in the second wave, but now if not today it could be tomorrow... Ugh, I just want my score already!
WaitingAUDscore - my sentiments exactly!
Waiting on aud score, I hope it doesnt mean anything if we didnt get it in the first round! now im more nervous
In Illinois waiting on FAR - I still don't see my score - Are released and posted different? If so - when can I see my score?!
IL FAR 24-48 HOURS for state to post the score
IL FAR - The AICPA has released FAR scores to the Illinois. Illinois still needs to process. They have been pretty quick, so you'll probably get your score tomorrow...
AUD scores for anyone in Florida yet?
Anyone know how long CA takes to post scores after the release. I took FAR 07/03 and hope I was in the release today.
Any idea how long CA takes to post scores after release?
Does anyone in IL know if the Loophole works or not? Or is it only NASBA states?
Will the loophole work if you test in Texas? Isn't Texas a non-NASBA state?
Anybody in CA got the AUD score? Can't wait any more....
@T.T. I received my AUD score from CA on Saturday morning. Maybe you are in the 2nd wave?
For all the people asking about CA scores ... if your score made it into Wave 1, it should be posted online within one day of the AICPA release. My experience has been that it is usually available in the morning to early afternoon. If you sign in and it says "Advisory Score Received", go to the Status page and look at the very bottom for your score and the report. I'm PRAYING REG gets released tomorrow!!! This wait is killin me!!!
I took AUD on 8/5, will I be in wave 2?
Has anyone received their score today?
@T.T. That could be the issue. I took AUD 7/22.
I haven't received my score yet... Still waiting. This whole waiting thing is not fun!! Just tell me already!
Took audit the first week of July in NY....I havent received my score yet either. Has anyone in NY received their audit score yet?
To those still waiting on AUD scores in CA (including me) NASBA just tweeted "Today, 1808 AUD and 8625 FAR scores were released by AICPA to NASBA from Jul/Aug 2010 testing window." So, hopefully we can check our scores tomorrow and not have to wait one more month for results. We were just put in batch #2
Has anyone received an OH AUD score yet?
I felt really nervous to get my REG scores. Hope I can pass!
Cao- I am so right there with you. REG is my final exam and now it's just a matter of waiting it out. It's terrible we had to be last and we still wont know if the scores will actually be released. Sure hope Jeff's Wednesday prediction is right! And best of luck to you on passing.
@NY - I havent received NY yet either. I know one person who received it earlier today from NY
Waiting in NY for Aud. this is my third section. looks like the Nasba site is crashing. Guys stop checking for 3 minutes let me get mine!
What's happening on Nasba?? It's out of order for some reasons...I guess.. Is it right time for Nasba to post scores?? I'm wondering.... I'm waiting.... I'm dying....from lazy Nasba
Still no luck...This eagerness is killing me.
So what is going on now?? NASBA's site is down or something... All this waiting and still no scores, ugh.
NASBA has to be posting grades for their website to be down
frustrated....nasba still not displaying site....so slow.....
Finally!!!!!!!!!!! Aud out in NY 84!!!!!!!!!!! One more to go (reg) what i figured out tonight is that another71.com is popular as nasba both were crushed>>>>>>
Its still not working for me in NY!!!! soo frusterating
@Abe, when did you attend AUD?
waiting on AUD...took July 15...wish NASBA's site would load..
finally got it...wow...didnt expeect to fail AUD again. Good luck to everyone
@NY2 - best of luck - it'll be my third time for AUD, the last having a 74, talk about a low blow
Anybody in CA got the AUD score today? nasba website doesn't work for CA, right? Any other way to find out the score except the CBA account?
Oras, i took Aud on 8/1. since nasba released more aud today you can still be in first wave and get it tomorrow night. Best thing to do is calling NAsba to see if they received your score.
@ Abe, I took AUD on 3 July so i think i'm in first wave
I am also in CA and took AUD on July 23. Please let me access the score.......i hate this system...
I accessed the score, and till now it's not released, how could it be? I attend AUD on 3 July, so I don't know.
Just checked CO for AUD & is out. Down at 66. All the best for others....
Anybody in New Hamphier babies? Please if anybody took it please tell me I'm waiting AUD
The Nasba website seems to be working much better. Just got my Audit score in OH and I passed! Just have Reg left on the 31st. Good luck everyone!
Hi Oras... I took the exam from NH on 7th aug... got results on the NASBA site -- scored 96 -- all the best to you... awaiting fin and reg
can we access our socre in ca on nasba? and how?
@K just go to https://www.nasba.org you can check it out. I passed a AUD, MT 80 points, not that bad I think I took on aug 11st. one left and I'm waiting
I took the exam on 8/2 in AL and just got my results back.... scored 84...good luck to the rest of you!
@David, how? I went there and then? thanks
Checked Aud from CO Passed with 88. Good luck to all those waiting and hope you all pass!! Now waiting for Far and Reg (BEC 82, Aud 88) Jeff - your normal prediction for wave1 cutoff is 7th, but this time we have seen for BEC that some guys who took on 11th and 12th also got in---- I took Far on 8/9 and reg on 8/12 - is there anyway of knowing what the cutoff is this time around (assuming that one got old Sims)?
Texas AUD is up! 90! Do not ask me why I am awake. hahaGood luck to all!
i took AUD from CO on 7/26. i can't see my scores on NASBA yet, can anyone tell me what can be the possible resaons for the same?
Has anyone seen their FAR score yet?
Took AUD in MI on 7/17 and my score still isn't up on NASBA. I'm assuming that means I'm in either that second batch of scores released yesterday or wave 2. :( Anyone else in MI get their AUD score yet?
I just failed AUD. Holy cow, I thought I had done pretty good and that if I failed it would at least be close to a 75 :( All I can do this morning is cry.
NYS has now posted audit scores. Now we just need Regulation!!
Has anyone been able to successfully determine pass/fail using the Ohio loophole for Massachusetts testers? I keep trying just for fun (right?), and keep getting "All sections of this exam are still in progress." Slightly antsy today. Sat for FAR on 7/30, if I pass, I am done. Not going to get much done at work today, save for reloading the NASBA website.
Passed audit! REALLY hope reg scores are released today
Waiting on FAR(7/1) and REG(7/31), and I could be done! The wait is killing me. Anyone know what time scores are updated to NASBA so I can stop checking for FAR every five minutes today at work haha.
How to know what the cutoff date for Far was this time around?? anyone pleaseeeeeeeeeeee
It sounds like no one has received their FAR scores yet. Is that right?
Still waiting on my FAR to post. Took exam on 7/29
After a 71 and now a 70 in AUD using Gleim, I am switching to Yaeger. Jeff you have me convinced
Ohio loophole is working as FAR is not showing for re-exam, hope i have cleared after two unsuccessful exams i.e BEC and Aud
@FL I dont think so - studies Gleim only and got 88 - I think it covered all material very well and 90% of the MCQ in my test were covered in gleim material - in addition - also practiced Wiley question bank. Try once more with short one line summary notes from gleim and practice on wiley. best of luck
@Chandra How about BEC? which book should i refer as I cudnt able to clear through Becker.. Thanks in advance
@Jitender BEC looks easy - but is very tricky - as one can spoil it with overconfidence - I expected over 95- got only 82! In my experience - no material is 100% good enough for BEC - you have to cover through multiple sources - at the same time there are at least 10-12 questions on BEC that will surprise you - so general knowledge and corporate experience will be very handy I will still advise to go for Gleim +wiley - study material +MCQ
If I took FAR on Aug 13, what do you guys think is the chance I will be in wave 1?
MN - Still waiting for AUD.
I'm waiting on my FAR score in IL. The website doesn't seem to be working...maybe they are putting in the scores right now! :-)
Anyone in VA get their FAR scores yet?
VAgirl - not yet - checking every chance I get
Yep, same here..
Still waiting for AUD in Ohio. I took AUD on 7/21.
MN- Waiting for AUD.
AUD for Georgia posted...90!! Congrats to all who passed!
Has anyone received scores in MN - AUD?
Any one in MD get FAR yet..... I can't do anything at work today.
NY has posted audit scores - I received mine.
anyone in PA get FAR yet?
has anyone received their audit scores in IL yet?
has anyone received their FAR scores in IL? i can hardly take the suspense anymore and i'm supposed to take REG on friday. i wish they'd hurry!!
Has anyone recieved their FAR scores in MA? Thanks!
Nothing in MA yet for me. Took FAR 7/31.
anyone in ca still not getting his aud score? I took it 7/18 the wait is really killing me! what time do they update our scores?
I am in GA and have received my score, unfortunately I didn't pass :( But I was wondering if there is a way to see a more detailed score through NASBA's website or do I just have to wait and get it in the mail?
Has any one in TX received there AUD score?
I took FAR in CA on 7/17 and no score up today. I really hope CA is taking an extra day to put up some scores. There is no way I can survive going through this release hell next month.
Sat for FAR in MA on 7/30 - no score yet.
If I took FAR August 13th, what is the chance I am in waive 1?
CA batch #2 AUD scores are out. I passed! YES!! 2 down 2 to go. I took AUD on 7/10 and was put into batch #2. Good thing I was not put into Wave #2. I do now know if I could have waited another month. For those you in CA that took AUD in Wave 1 and are still waiting, NASBA might release a batch #3. I've seen it happen before.
@Julia, Congrats for scoring 90 in Aud, Which books hv u used? Please suggest...Thanks in advance
No FAR scores in VA yet says the BOA.
Have not yet get my score, took AUD in DE on Aug 2nd.
For anyone looking for MN postings, MN AUD scores were posted last night.
@Ellie How come I still haven't received my score yet?
Did anyone in PA get their AUD score yet?
Does anyone know what time of day IL normally releases scores? Also, I'm looking at ilboa.org and signing into my account to see the score. Is this the best way? Do I get a detail of the score on this site? Thanks!
Took audit on 7/2 in PA.... still no score. Nothing special about sims. When will the additional adut scores released by the aicpa yesterday be released by nasba?
I took Audit in Ohio on August 4th & still no results. It is my last one & The shortcut is not working either :-( Anyone in Ohio receive their score yet? I sure hope I'm in the batch they released yesterday!
i just spoke to nasba and they didn't receive my FAR score (took it 7/1). does the aicpa ever release additional FAR scores for wave 1 like they did yesterday with AUD? i don't think i can wait another whole month for my score!!!
FAR scores are up in IL.
NASBA site is very slow must be all u ppl hogging it! Please do post if MA scores are out. Thanks!
still waiting for my audit score for IL...i took it on 7/13? any updates for IL?
Oh well, how did you do? Does anyone know if MN takes longer compared to other states? When would FAR for MN be expected to be released?
Has anyone received FAR scores in VA? Thanks!
Technology exists today to the extent that we can: -Communicate about our daily life to the world in seconds -Give someone a new face -Split and fuse atoms -Put people on the moon But NASBA needs 24-48 hours to match 10,000 scores to 10,000 test takers? As if the AICPA wait is long enough! Still fretting over my score, continuing the perpetual refreshing...
I got a 66, but it's what I expected. I moved my REG test back to July 3rd which means I only put in about two weeks on FAR which I took on July 22nd. I didn't study non-profit or government which turned out to be probably 20% of the test. I did fine on one Sim, but bombed the other. So, I should think that if I just get the non-profit and government topics down, that would give me at least another 7 or 8 questions on the test and should be enough to push me into the eighties. Anyone want to venture a guess as to what it takes to go from a 66 to a 70? Is that about five MC questions?
I mean 66 to a 75.
I read on another thread that VA's site may be down... or has been for awhile? Apparently calling them is one option.
took far 7/7-- no score this wave though. does far ever get released in more than one batch???
TX Scores were up early early this morning. Passed AUD with a 86!! This was my last one. Good Luck to all of you still testing!!
FAR scores for IL are in.
I just received my FAR score in IL. Although the news is not good for me, I wish the rest of you the best!
Anyone in TX get FAR scores yet?
Call the BOA to get your VA FAR score. I passed!
What the heck - I took FAR 7/29 and I don't see my score? What does this mean? 2nd wave? or worse?!
I still havent received my audit score in IL...we are just supposed to sign in and look through the ILBOA site? correct?
Just called Va.. 91 on FAR! Can't believe it. I told everyone I was sure I failed so people are right when they say not to think too negatively...
@CA who received his AUD score with the second release What was your score? Was it borderline? Just wondering because I did not receive my FAR score this morning in CA and I'm getting worried. Please share. Thanks
good morning/afternoon everyone! who out there is hoping for REG scores to be released today?! @IL FAR - There possibly could be more scores released for FAR today.
@IL Audit: that is how I checked my score. @IL FAR: You should be in wave 1....you may have gotten a brand new simulation-therefore the scoring is taking longer. Or you could just place the blame on the website. I think the ILBOA website is terrible and it does not work correctly half the time!
@ bsant I'm in CA too and I would keep checking. I remember that my FAR score wasn't posted until sometime after 10AM. good luck!
Anyone get FAR score in CA yet?
@SEEKOR: You may have received a new simulation on your exam, which would automatically put your score release in Wave 2.
Do they ever post scores during the day or only at night?
Any Far scores reported from CO? also anyone from any state who wrote Far after 8/7 and got their scores in wave1?
@REG-CA Thanks, I'll keep pressing F5. Was your score borderline? Was it received the same day as other CA people who got it at 5:30am as usual? I got my AUD score on saturday at 5:30am and I took the exam on Aug 10 and didn't get my FAR score this morning, and I took FAR in July. @David Yes, some CA people got their score this early morning at usual. There's many, too many I'd say, who didn't get it though.
IL FAR scores are up! 89!! YAY!!
Anyone got Far score in NY?
I am bitter here...when is REG going to post! There's only so long a person can wait...post them already!!!!!!!!!!
I just called the PA BOA and they stated that they do not give out scores.
I am waiting on my FAR score in IL. Anybody else still waiting?
Called MA BOA they said 24-48 hours for Wave1. oh my....
@ bsant I got an 86 on FAR. I remember checking once I got up around 8AM and nothing. I checked around 10:30 after a meeting I had and my passing score was there :)
I took IL FAR on 7/1, but I haven't received my score. does it mean i have received a new simulation on my exam? are new simulations more difficult?
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey Thanks GOD, GOD give me the FAR 82 this the first part for me Congratulation for all I hope all of us get CPA
Does anyone know if FAR scores have been released in SC? I took it on 7/2 and I'm still getting nothing from the NASBA site...
MN - I took AUD on 7/3 - nothing yet.
@Fob - Do you know if they meant 24-48 hours from the time the AICPA released, or from the time you called?
@ Ellie, I took AUD so early 7/3. How can this happen to me. Another month of waiting.... sucks, man.
@SEEKOR I took REG on 10/5/09 and didn't get my score back until around 12/20/09. If you end up with new simulations it's wave 2 by default, as ridiculously long of a wait as that is.
I took REG back on January 28, 2010. They released the scores for reg on February 18, however my score didn't get posted until February 27. So it can take at least 8-10 days for them to upload your score after they have been released. At least for MN anyway.
@ justin -- did you have any indication on your REG exam that you had a new sim? i'm hoping i didn't get any new simulations on my test. all my tabs were pretty straight forward.
Something is definately up with the CA FAR scores. There are a lot of people with still no score. Maybe they did a large batch of new sims but I'm hoping the employees slept in today and scores will be up tomorrow.
@REG-CA No indication really. There are a number of questions throughout the exam that won't be reflected in your score, they just evaluate the responses, but nothing indicates which is which. The only hint I might have had was hearing friends talk about the difficulty of their questions - essentially, one friend got a question "What is 1 + 1?" compared to my "Evaluate Einstein's theory of relativity in regards to the IRC of 1986, considering the effect of the industrial revolution in the 1800's" Again, I had no idea, but my suspicions were pretty much confirmed when I got my score so late.
@Justin From the time the AICPA releases it. They said "24-48 BUSINESS hours".....
Haven't received score for FAR in IL yet.. Took exam on 7/06. Any chance that they still posting ? or should I assume that I got a new sim?
@Fob Thanks - NASBA says business days in it's tweets. Hoping we find out tonight. If I'm in wave 2, I am going to be an absolute wreck for another month. I kept waking up every hour last night and checking the score on my phone. I can't do it again!
@ Justin - LOL, I had one simulation that was pretty much 'what is 1+1' level of difficulty. My second one was more tough but definitely not 'theory of relativity' tough. Welp - I guess I'll just have to try my best to be patient and hope for the best! thanks for your input.
@REG-CA Yeah, I shouldn't say they were EXTREMELY difficult, but the amount of content was overwhelming as compared to how my friends made it sound. I walked out of there thinking I had a 60 at best. I didn't even finish the second simulation. But I somehow pulled out an 89, another hint that parts I didn't complete weren't graded. Good luck!
passed Audit - my last part. checked the result last note at midnight and after many tries, got the Nasba website to work. I took Audit on July 1 in NY.
@Justin You should call NASBA and ask if you are in wave 1 or 2. They lady said I'm in wave 1 which will take 24-48 hours for them to complete posting stuff.
I took FAR 7/29, but yet I am still waiting... I see several ppl from IL (FAR) are in the same boat. Perhaps we are all Wave 2, or perhaps they will post later. Any ideas from anyone?
Sorry, no Ideas about IL FAR. I am hoping the score is not in wave 2 also.
Did anybody get their FAR score in FL? Cannot wait anylonger!!!((
@Fob I will probably just wait it out. No number of calls will change the fact I'm in wave 1 or 2. I guess it'll just have to keep me hanging for awhile. Thanks again!
did any one get FAR score in Maine?
I am in IL and I got my score today.
@Olga I'm in FL and haven't gotten FAR yet either. Got AUD last night around 1am (99!) so I'm expecting we'll get FAR around the same time tonight. Good luck!
@tcpa85 what exam did you find out about?
I took FAR in NY on 7/13. I have not received my grade on NASBA yet. Has anyone from NY received their grade? I'm beginning to think I may have had a new simulation unfortunately...
NY typically doesn't release scores until around 10PM, so don't start sweating yet...
Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy Thanks GOD, Thank GOD, GOD gives me the AUD and now I have to set for another two parts Thanks a lot GOD.
Can anyone validate that if you received the message "We are sorry. All CPA exams are in process" when trying to re-register means that you have passed that part? I'm waiting on FAR and I take BEC next week(which hopefully will be my last part...)
Hi AZ candidates, I just received my FAR grade through email. Hope everyone gets good news!! Good Luck.
@Mike That is the same message I try when doing when I try registering in Ohio. The message hasn't changed for me at all, even before FAR scores were released. As a side note, I have registered and taken all four parts with Massachusetts, not OH. I haven't received my score yet, but I regarded that message as inconclusive.
Did anyone get their AUD score in MI yet?
Anyone got FAR in MI? I'm taking BEC next week, like Mike and the wait is killing me. Not to mention that I'm waiting for REG as well!!!
@Mike, I was getting the same response and just called NASBA and my FAR score hasn't been released (of course this is my last section I am waiting on). If you have a new simulation that simulation is the one that is not graded, correct?
Anyone in VA heard about FAR yet?
Maybe OH fixed the loophole!!! Not cool!!!
Jeff, How do the independent states receive scores from NASBA? By mail? Still waiting on BEC scores from last week.
@VAwaiting Call the BOA- the website is down but they have the scores.
A coworker and I got our FAR scores today. We're in Illinois.
any news on GA FAR scores?
When does IN get FAR scores?
@Mike Scratch my last response - called NASBA, my score hasn't been released yet. @Waiting in FL I'm in the same boat as you - FAR is it for me. They had to make me wait.
Anyone get FAR scores in MD.... I took the exam on July 17... PLEASSSSSEEEEEE
waitinginVA - Thanks!! For all those in VA they have them but you have to call.
I took FAR on July 1 in MA.Anyone from MA got their score yet. I called NASBA this morning and was told they have received my scores.
Anyone from MA got their FAR scores yet.
I am from MA. I called NASBA today and they told me that they did not receive my score. so not scores yet for me either
Sat for AUD in CA on 8/7/10 and haven't received my score yet. Spoke with NASBA this afternoon and they said they just received my score today. So I guess there will be a 3rd AUD score release?
@CA AUD I wish we are in the same group. I took aud on july 23 and still don't receive my score.
For anyone in GA waiting on FAR scores-I called and they said they received scores and it should be no later than 24 hours for posting. If you want to know if you are in Wave 1 or 2 they will tell you if they received a score for you or not.
@KB-GA what kind of information do I need to provide them to check my score? and #?
If more scores are going to be released today, does anyone know approximately what time (at latest) it would be announced?
I just called and gave them my first name and last name and they told me they did receive a score for FAR and will post soon. I called 615-880-4250
K,& CA AUD, me too! i have been waiting forever! CA AUD, did NASBA have your score in their system when we are in independent states? (as CA has its own reporting site).
@K When I called, I had to tell them my state, first and last name, and birth date. @ REG-CA I also asked about my REG score status (took it on 7/10) and they said they hadn't received it yet.
@CA001 Since I've heard they won't release scores I asked if they could tell me whether I would be receiving good or bad news and they said they couldn't see my score, only whether or not it was received. I was told that I would have to wait until CA posted it.
Anybody from NJ got their FAR score yet?
CA AUD, do you mind giving me the number you called? i want to check mine too. Thanks.
MA - SCORES: Nothing yet. I give up. i'm going to have to assume i fail for the time being. this waiting game is not cool.
So, I called the fabulous people at NASBA and asked if they could tell me whether I was in wave #1 or #2. So, she says.. your score has not been released.. you are most likely in wave #2. Seriously?!? WTF?!? You have to be kidding me!?! I can NOT wait another month... ugh!! I took FAR on 7/25.. so I'm assuming I got a new simulation and that's what I could be in wave #2.. but I'm PRAYING that FAR has a batch #2 release asap!! Anyone else in a similar situation?!?
Exact same situation here... I took FAR on 7/29 so I could be in WAVE 1.. and now, no Score... its my last test and Im playing the waiting game.
Hey Seriously, Calm down. I took FAR last year on 10/3 and didn't get my score until 12/22. It's absolutely ridiculous, but it's the nature of the beast. There's nothing we can do about it. Good luck anyway!
@ seriously I am in the same boat.. FAR is my last section and I called NASBA and they said my score has not been released. I am very frustrated as well since I could have spent the last month and a half studying and received my score at the same time. I had one simulation that seemed a little off so I am thinking I received a new simulation but I am praying that they have another batch release. Good luck!
Same story here in MA. Just called and they said my FAR score has yet to be released. I took it 7/31. It's my last once and my first exam credit (BEC) expires at the end of this month. I hope they have a second Wave to release soon. With so many of these stories, my guess is they do. Don't lose hope.
I took FAR on 7/16 and did not receive the score yet. I called IL Board and they said all FAR socres they got from AICPA have been uploaded into the system.... I called AICPA and asked if they could tell me wether I was in wave#1 or #2. She said your score has not been released... so your simu is new and you are likely in wave#2... Oh noooooooooo....
I just called and got the same news from NASBA< weird. Are we really all in Wave 2? Did NASBA tell anyone they are in wave 1 yet?
Could you give me the number to call the AICPA - what info did you need to give them. This is a real bummer for all of us, hopefully we all passed tho!
Anyone know anything about UT FAR? I took it 8/1 and haven't seen anything.
Hi...anyone received FAR scores is CO yet???took it on 7/6..ohhh the wait is agonizing...!!!
609-671-2900 AICPA Examination team; press#3 for receptionist This is the number IL Board gave me... The lady in AICPA said they released all FAR score in Wave#1 yesterday...
Anyone in MS received their BEC grades yet? This wait is killing me.....
@ Yep...Me too, Waiting in FL and FAR(wave 2): Wow.. seems funky.. this is the last exam for us all, we've taken it within the wave 1 window, yet still no score?!? Indeed.. let's bring out the rain dance, knock on wood, cross our fingers (whateva good luck tricks we can think of) and hope for a batch #2 release! ;) @ Morgy: 'Calm' is beyond me at the moment. According to my Hubby, patience has eluded me my whole life.. lol. =) Good luck everyone!
For those people who failed or are going to fail... YOU SUCK!! haha just kidding...
@Wishing in MS Called today and the board stated they haven't even received the scores yet to mail out. Good luck!
I took my FAR exam on 7/24 and I am taking audit on Friday. Cant study at all and my REG expires on this month :(
So I have been working on my CPA for ever, bad study habits and worse study materials. Last year started studying with Becker and passed AUD 79, BEC 77, failed REG 71 and failed FAR 68. This year passed REG 85 took FAR 07/12. Called NASBA today and said they did not receive my score :-( Has been such a long process and I lose my first pass in November. I just want to know so I can get on with my life.....
Dear AICPA, Thanks for nothing. You rat bastards. Love, WTF
Has anyone in PA received their AUD scores yet? I haven't.
So your telling me theres a chance....that i took financial on july 8th.. and will not get my score tonight at 1015?(NY).
So, if we are all in WAve #2 for FAR, when will we get our scores?
@Not a CPA yet Wave 2 release will be around the same time next month.
Took FAR on 7/1...still no word (how credible is the 10 o'clock release rumor?)
I read something about an OH/MN loophole.... I'm guesssing it's if you go to the NASBA website and can select an exam that you just took, that means you failed it? If so, that really sucks. Also, anyone in OH get their FAR score?
@JEFF any idea whats going on with the FAR release? did 8,625 people take it on July 1 or something? need some insight, im going crazy waiting!
weird!!!!! I took my AUD on Aug. 11, I got my score today for 82. I'm happy that I passed, but at same time, I did my FAR on July 31, nothing at all, what is going on? Can it be a mistake that they switched my 2 exams, can it be real that I took AUD 2 weeks ago and I got my score?
No FAR scores released in MI yet, at least not mine!!!
@Vermont No, that seems perfectly reasonable. You must have just made the cutoff for audit and NASBA released audit scores prior to releases financial scores. Congrats btw, I'm still waiting for my audit score.
Thank you Brandon! This is driving me crazy, I hope NASBA will come up with other better systems to release scores, this is just wrong to let people wait like this. Good luck with you AUD.
@Waiting in MS Wow! They haven't even received the first set of scores? You have got to be kidding me! This is just brutal and wrong! Good luck to you, too. Hopefully, we will get our grades before they expire!
Here is an idea. With many companies moving work overseas I think that AICPA should consider doing so as well. This way they could get help with grading and we would get our scores sooner!!! Great idea!!! Scoring can be done while the AICPA employees are resting at night. There is a day somewhere in the world when we sleep, or don't sleep because we are waiting for the scores!!!
Remaining cautiously optimistic about FAR; AICPA release schedule of FAR for the July/August 2009 testing window per NASBA's Twitter account: 8/19/09: 7,460 8/21/09: 581 8/24/09: 351 ------- 9/23/09: 8,668 9/24/09: 30 9/25/09: 3 So, hoping I might get lucky with tomorrow's REG release.
Reg better come out tomorrow!!! I am taking my last test on thursday and celebrating immediately after! I can't celebrate without knowing my reg score!
Justin, where did you see that on the Nasba twitter page? I am waiting for FAR too, I hate this not knowing if you had a new simulation.
@Jenny I kept loading more and more of the page until I got down to August/September 2009. I feel your pain.. It's killing me too! I was an absolute waste at work today. I switched between refreshing my non-present score and refreshing this forum. I just want to know if I'm all done!
Looks like the NASBA site is repeating its episode from last night. Anyone else having trouble checking their scores?
@Neil Yup, having the same problem. Traffic is picking up. Won't be surprised if we can't access another 71 again soon.
Passed AUD with a 77! Works for me! :)
This is getting old...NASBA site won't load for me either. When am I going to find my score? 3am? Or end of September haha. I hate this stupid routine. Been here way too many times.
I'm having trouble viewing my score as well. This is the first time this has happened for me. The NASBA website just won't load. Does anyone know when we will be able to see our scores? Is it a problem because of traffic?
@Mike This was the same problem last night and I was checking until about 11:45pm before I called it quits. Woke up at 6am this morning and found my 96 on my Audit awaiting... couldn't fall back to sleep after that because I was too excited. I imagine sometime in the middle of the night 3-4am the site will be working.
Has anyone in the NY, NJ, CT area received their FAR score yet? (if they took before wave 1 cut-off that is)
@ NY area I took FAR in NYC on July 1. Hoping to hear at some point tonight when the site craziness calms down.
i dont know who i hate more nasba or bisk study materials
Argh. In IL, I still don't have my FAR score. I guess unless they release a few hundred more this means it won't be till september :(
took FAR for NY on July 1st. got the score to load using an iPhone, it was slow, but it eventually worked.
Help! FAR is my final test, find out tonight if I am now a CPA!!! This blows, why does everyone say if it is not tonight it won't be until Sept?
The test results come out in two waves.. Each wave has one major release of scores for each section, then MIGHT have one or two smaller releases. Some people might sit for the exam in the first month of a test window, but depending on the particular questions they might have, there is a possibility they won't get their score until wave 2. Wave 2 results come out around the same time in the following month, so September it is.
anybody in ME got FAR score?
I am still going nuts over here. I was up every hour or two last night, checking to see if my score was up via my phone. I wasted a good portion of the day today, until I broke down and called NASBA to see if I was included in the release yesterday, which they said I was not. I have noticed a LOT of people in these forums from my state (MA) who haven't received their FAR score yet, so I am hoping it is some flukey coincidence and there will be a smaller score release tomorrow with mostly MA scores. Other than that, I might just not bother checking until September.
Look. When they say it will be released within 24-48 hours they are giving in estimate. They are also being conservative in saying your test will be in the 2nd wave. I've had them take 8-9 days to release my score after the date the scores were released to post them to the website. I swear the letter came in the mail the next day. Yes there is a chance that your score will be in the 2nd wave, but it is probably slim. The majority of the time it simply means your state hasn't got on top of posting all the scores yet. - my opinion based on 2 of my exams and waiting for scores.
Believe me, I totally agree with you. I've seen scores get posted at very funny times before. But when I spoke to them today, they said they didn't have any score information for me. Seeing as how there have been no further FAR releases, and any remaining FAR wave 1 releases will number in the hundreds, it seems more likely I'll end up in wave 2. It's my last part, they just want to give me one last headache to go out on.
Got my FAR scores for MA. Didn't pass though.
Got my FAR score for ME (passed)
anyone else find that the nasba site is being slow?
NASBA site is not working at all, i am trying for the last 2 hours
Has anyone received a score in FL?
Waiting for FAR in florida...determined to stay awakeee
anyone get a score from Iowa yet?
guys - CO Far scores are finally out - passed with 82!!! now waiting for Reg Aud 8/3 - 88 BEC 8/6 - 82 Far 8/9 - 82 Reg 8/12 - waiting
All guys who could not see their score just google nasba score release go to the link provided in the search it will take you to indiana just put in your section id and dob and you can get your scores!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (only for nasba states)
CO FAR scores out guys.... 83 passed... all the best to others...
still not seeing my FL FAR score using the indiana link....ughh
Nasba is finally working..but no score for Fl yet((
Florida is also out - as I can see on other forums too! so those who havent got their scores might be in second release of wave 1(8/25) or in wave 2!
MN is out. It was running slow and as soon as it let me in my score came up. 88 for FAR. One more to take on Friday and i might be all done!
Anyone have PA FAR scores yet?
Still expecting for the release of Reg on Wednesday ?
I am waiting for REG and this is my last part...... I think we will get the score on THU or FRI,,, if not in wave 2... If anyone has any new then please update
Anyone know if FAR has been released for South Carolina?
Anybody see FAR scores for Texas
Still waiting on FAR in Texas..... I thought it would be up by now
Took FAR on 7/2 and still have not seen score posted in Louisiana. Passed BEC and REG. Taking AUD Monday and I hope that is my last one. Has anyone received a score from Louisiana for FAR??
@Alli I thought Texas would be up to by now. Dang
@Justin... I had my REG in july, and it was really tough, i am not sure if i will pass, but i am hoping... your msg gives me some hopes... thank you I had some issue with my test center during my REG Exam, I am not sure if i should report that to NASBA, that had effected me in my exam! it was really bad. any advise!!
Any Texas FAR updates??? This is a killer!
Yes Nash....u MUST report!
NY FAR results are finally up and i passed with 82!!!!! just gonna put it out there that i did not even touch the communication part for either of the simulations and pretty much only had time for a few parts of the simulations...so if you do good on multiple choice (which originally i thought was too hard and i didnt think i did ok) you can still pass!
@Nash Reg was absolutely brutal to me. I can't remember the last time I was so shocked than when I found out I passed. Unfortunately, it might be too late to report issues, and I don't know what state you're in (assuming it's different for each state). For example, CA requires candidates with testing center issues to report the problem to testing center staff during the exam, who will file an incident report, then the candidate would have to report the problem to the CA state board and NASBA within 10 days. Either way, good luck!
Anyone get their score in OH for FAR? Mine's still not showing.
Does anyone know what it means if people are saying NY FAR scores are out but I keep checking mine and it still says "Error: Score Not Found" :(
Anyone receive TN scores for FAR yet?
So I took AUD on 7/14 and have YET to receive my score- did I somehow manage to get shuffled into Wave 2? As if the exam wan't inherently stressful enough... Does anyone have thoughts?
@stressedinPA I am in the same boat. We are both proud owners of a new simulation I suspect. If it is any consolation, I took mine the week prior. Hey, it is what it is. Good luck!
@Neil I'm in OH too and also waiting on the score. Nothing yet. When did you take yours?
@3done - how do you know their will be a second wave1 release on the 25th? took FAR in ga on 7/15, nasba informed me they had not received my score. bummer
@AUDinFL thanks for letting me know I'm not alone! Good luck to you too!!!
@GA I remember Jeff also saying that there could be a few more aud scores released along with reg on 8/25 or 8/26 - I also have been reading the same on other forums and many have the same opinion
I took mt FAR on 7/16 in NY and i still haven't received it. But my simulation didnt look brand new to me.. Will i be in wave 2 or do u think my results should be out with REG today?
I feel like there are a TON of people waiting for FAR, it looks like a lot of you called NASBA and ILBOA (those from IL) - Whats the verdict? I was being optimistic but when I didnt have a score this morning Ive lost a lot of that... Do we REALLY have to wait another 4 weeks?!?! This is my last test - not cool.
@NY :) I can understand - this is pure unadulterated torture - North korean style! Most likely reasons are (just repeating a few of jeffs and other opinions on various forums) 1)New Sim - only AICPA can tell you whether it was new or not 2) Borderline scores - 71-76 - so sent for a final review 3)Second release - wave 1 - no idea how someone who took on 7/16 can fall in second release
I took FAR 7/2 and haven't gotten my socre! Could it really take this long or do you think there is a problem and I should call? I did change my name with NASBA a week ago due to marriage but everything looks to be changed correctly.
Just called Nasba about my FL FAR score and they said "your score was received today and should be posted online within 24-48 hours" why cant they just tell you over the phone?!
@FL FAR My guesses: (a) room for error, (b) they don't have access to actual scores (controls over the reporting process?), (c) general policy - they'd have 1,000 people calling every time this month asking for their score early. Do you know if they received it from the AICPA today? Or was this the release from a few days ago? Honestly, I don't even know if FL is a NASBA state.
Has TX ever posted scores during the day? I am waiting on FAR. Usually they are posted first thing in the morning, like around 4 or 5 am
Took FAR in NY on 7/12 and still have not received score. Noticed some people in NY have received FAR scored last night/this morning so I got nervous. Called NASBA and spoke with this lady Kim, she said my scored was released by AICPA and should be posted within next 24-48hrs. Therefore, for people in NY area that haven't received anything, there is still hope...
So REG is my last test and I pray, pray, pray I passed it. I see the prediction is for the scores to be released today - is this still what others are thinking? Also, since this is my last test and the scores will be released by the AIPCA today (I hope) the Ohio loophole should work, right? Someone please reply!!!
@Jusitan and cpa.... Thakns for your advise!! I will do that by today! I suppose to receive my REG score by tomorrow!! Hopefullly passed... Good luck to everyone!!!
TX - I'm waiting for TX to post FAR exam results as well, so hopefully they're just running behind.
3done - Thanks for the great info. I took my exam on 7/29. I called the AICPA but they said they could only tell me that FAR had been released. How do I find out if it was just a new sim? Basically a NEW sim or simply wave 2 is "ok" with me... but borderline 71-76 is not what I wanted to hear... makes me very nervous
Has anyone received the AUD scores in TX yet?
@justin FL is a Nasba state and all the lady said was "your score was received today." I'm assuming it was from the release on monday because I havent seen too many posts from FL candidates who have received their FAR scores yet.
Perhaps I am just trying to be optimistic. But it seems a very large percentage of people are waiting for the FAR exam to be released, compared to any scores Ive seen. Infact I dont think Ive seen any scores in IL. But a lot of waiting. So hopefully according to 3done its options 1 & 3. I cant imagine ALL of us were held back due to borderline scores. 1)New Sim only AICPA can tell you whether it was new or not 2) Borderline scores 71-76 so sent for a final review 3)Second release wave 1 no idea how someone who took on 7/16 can fall in second release
Changed my name from 'Seriously.. WTF??' on yesterday's posts to 'THERE IS HOPE!!!' b/c I just spoke w/ NASBA and they HAVE released more FAR scores today!! Woop Woop!! Good luck everyone!!
Has anyone received the AUD scores in DE?
hey guys!! I told you more Far scores were coming today no one would believe me Jeff has been right based on past trends!!!!!!!!!
I took AUD on 7/17 and I still haven't received my score yet. I called NASBA and they told me they haven't receieved my score and that I would get it "sometime between now and the end of September." I thought I was in wave 1?
@Joe You could have taken it on 7/1 and ended up in wave 2. Certain conditions make wave 1 people fall in the wave 2 bucket. Unforunate fact of life in the CPA exam. Take my REG example - I took it on 10/5, didn't get my score until 12/20. It was a brutal 2.5 months.
If I took FAR Aug 13th, anyone think theres a chance the score will be in wave 1?
@Justin That sucks. Thanks for the info though. On an extreme side not, why is there a picture of the EGA by my name? I don't think I've ever posted on this site before...
@NY It is both probable and possible - that this time around - someone who took as late as 8/13 may be in wave 1 for BEC results - I remember someone who took on 8/12 was in wave 1 - same for Far - this time - I (and few others) took on 8/9 and were in wave 1 Assuming that 9th was a monday and the end of week was friday - and asssuming AICPA may consider a full week - rather than just part of a week - there is hope!!
I just called NASBA again this morning. Yesterday my FAR score was not released. This morning it is. They said I should see it online by Friday afternoon. I took it in MA on 7/31. Good Luck to everyone else.
Any news on Reg release??
Sounds like the FAR release today was pretty significant. Keeping my fingers crossed.. @Joe I have no clue about your picture. I thought you were just proud to be American or something.
@Justin Haha. Well I am. And I love the Marines, but I have no idea why it's up there? Maybe it has something to do with my email address?
